RSPP Call for Papers | Special Issue on Internal migration in China

Dear Colleagues,

The aim of Regional Science Policy and Practice (Regional Science Policy & Practice - RSPP) is to promote and diffuse the understanding of human interaction in space, based on sound, rigorous and up-to-date methodologies, and focusing on real and urgent issues for peoples and places that require adequate policy responses.

China is currently experiencing a rapid and dramatic urbanisation process, with significant population movements between rural and urban areas, and between semi-urban, urban, and metropolitan areas. These migratory movements have in turn affected institutional reforms, urban housing and labour markets, and generated social tensions, often heightened by policy changes and social constraints.

This special issue aims to highlight new research on the topic of internal migration in China, including the drivers of migration, outcomes for migrants and non-migrants, inequalities arising from migration processes, and the impact of migration on housing, labour markets, access to services and welfare, as well as economic growth in both urban and rural areas. Of particular interest are papers using innovative qualitative or quantitative research methods, new data sets, comparative case studies, and those discussing policy experimentation at the national, regional or city scale.

Authors are invited to submit an abstract by the 1st November 2021 to Maria Abreu (This email address is being protected from spambots.
