Labour Mobility in Urban China is the focus of this
comprehensive account which introduces readers to the far-reaching changes
arising from the transformation of the Chinese labour market. The volume
brings together academic research and practical experience from China and
abroad. The authors discuss challenges such as mismatches between labour
supply and demand, the influx of rural labour migrants, rising
unemployment and the expansion of flexible/informal work, including gender
dimensions. A variety of problem-solving strategies from state and
non-state actors alike are presented. An essential resource for academics,
students and practitioners in the field, this volume analyses the erosion
of the “ Great Wall“ between rural and urban China.
