Abstract

While China continues to attract the attention of social scientists worldwide and Chinese names and faces become a must at international forums, what can Chinese social researchers do in their own country? In the context of socio-political changes as well as intellectual development after the Cultural Revolution, this paper delineates how professional academic research on migration emerged in the 1990s through ideological debate and policy study.
