Description:

The history of hukou and the evolution of peasant enclaves in the city of Beijing suggest that spatial segregation can be both an economic pressure and a social choice of a migrant worker. This and combination of globalization and high migration has resulted in emerging problems of socioeconomic and spatial segregation. This essay discusses the perspective of three articles on this issue.

From the Paper:

"The history of hukou and the evolution of peasant enclaves in the city of Beijing suggest that spatial segregation can be both an economic pressure and a social choice of a migrant worker. In the article, "Social Polarization and Segregation in Beijing," the authors Gu and Liu indicate that the city has developed two distinct classes that are both spatially and socially segregated (Gu, 211). Pointing to globalization and foreign investment as a reason for economic segregation, their approach is to explore the reasons for poverty and segregation of the migrant workers in that city in terms of similarities with Western countries (Gu, 204)."
