Citizenship Issues in China's Internal Migration: Comparisons with Germany and Japan
Dorothy J. Solinger compares the migration regimes in China, Germany, and Japan, all of which have shared a xenophobic basis toward "foreign workers" (in China's case, including its own peasants) along with a drive to develop economically at almost any cost. She identifies common factors that have limited the application of rights for these people, and, through comparison, uncovers conditions that may make for improvements over the longer haul.
