Chapter 7: Minority mobility in Guizhou province, with a focus on planned resettlement and its implications for ethnicity and identity
The paper discusses policy-induced or planned migration of ethnic minorities in Guizhou province. The migration program in Guizhou, which may be the most ambitious program of this kind in China, started in 2012 and proposes to relocate 2 million of ethnically diverse population from their rural home villages to resettle in nearby towns and cities. I visited some of their villages and the settlements. The paper focuses on ethnic migrants and cultural issues of resettlement.
