(p.216) 13 The Impact of Temporary Migration on Migrant Communities
Transition and Challenge

This chapter focuses on the impact of temporary migration on migrant communities in cities. It shows that migrant workers in Chinese cities are disadvantaged in terms of employment opportunities and accessibility to services and welfare benefits, such as unemployment allowances and formal employment contracts. While it has become easier for many migrants to work, stay, and earn a cash income in the cities, many of them live in the migrant-concentrated communities, which are the most disadvantaged communities with poor living conditions.

Keywords:   internal migration, rural-urban migration, impacts of migration, migrant-concentrated community, employment of migrants, living conditions
