La pauvreté dans les villes chinoises : le cas des migrants

Abstract : Two categories of poverty exist in China: that in rural areas, the poorest and largest, and that in cities, composed largely of migrants. The latter, peasants in search of work and an opportunity to improve their living conditions in urban areas, represent between one quarter and one third of the population in the large Chinese cities and close to 20% of the national population. Differences in income and lifestyles exist in all cities, both developed and developing. However, China’s case is noteworthy for two reasons: the magnitude of the differences and the number of people concerned. Migrants make up a significant part of the population yet live differently from other citizens. Consequence of a mass rural exodus in the most populous nation on earth, they constitute a social category that does not exist elsewhere.
