Abstract

The project proposes contributions: 1 To our knowledge of our region, especially of sources of conflict within China, and how Chinese labour markets operate (and are different in different places). 2 To understanding Australian society, by contributing to knowledge about the effects of categories of citizenship on labour market performance. 3 To Australia's place in international social science, by linking western debates about migration and labour markets to the conditions of societies in transition. 4 To closer cultural ties between Australia and China, by collaborative research with scholars in China. 5 To the training of future generations of scholars of China.
