「Building inclusive Chinese cities? — Insights from immigration governance」
Many Chinese cities have now committed to the ambitious goal of striving for the excellent global city, which often implies the liberalization of migration control. This presentation focuses on immigration governance in Chinese cities experiencing rapid economic growth but with restrictive policies for granting citizenship to domestic migrants. It will examine the architecture of policy for managing the massive inflow of migration at the city level. It also unravels the policy logic, nature and ramifications. The presentation shows that immigration governance in Chinese cities is manipulated by selective inclusion that hunts for those deemed economically desirable, while excluding those categorized as undesirable. We argue that such skewed inclusion is embedded in the neoliberal state-biased development that prioritizes economic imperatives over the basic rights of migrants. Consequently, policy effects may be far from the government’s stated aspirations. The presentation also demonstrates that, despite in the different political economic context, how (and in what ways) migration control in urban China can function in much the same sense as programs of legal permanent residence in many countries.
