This chapter examines Chinese migration to Southeast Asia from 1869 to 1939. During this period, complex movements of migrant workers to, from, and within Southeast Asia took place. These were centred around Singapore and they were supported by ethno-linguistic networks. While networks were exclusive against outsiders (e.g., Fukienese networks served only its people), the establishment of extensive networks suggests that by the early 20th century, migration no longer depended on personal contacts.

Keywords:   Chinese migration, Southeast Asia, migrant workers, ethno-linguistic networks
