About this book

This book discusses the urbanization of China and identifies four major features of ethnic minority mobility partners over the last twenty years: the three-stage peripheral-to-core transition pattern; the escalating decline of the urban minority population in the central region of China, particularly since 2000; the city agglomerations located in the eastern region of China, which have begun playing a leading role in minority urbanization, especially in the Yangtze and Pearl River Delta; and lastly, the continuous beneficiaries of supportive policies that have led metropolises, such as provincial capitals, to be shaped into important regional minority population concentrations in both China’s western region and its autonomous areas. Presenting the first comprehensive, retrospective study on the evolution of the spatial-temporal distribution of ethnic groups, focusing on Chinese urbanization on a national scale and based on the three most recent national censuses, the book provides insights into Chinese urbanization processes and their inter/intra-relating mechanisms in ethnic minority areas. Given its scope, it is a valuable resource for scholars, policy and – ultimately – decision-makers wanting to improve the processes of sustainable and inclusive urbanization in China.

About the authors

Gaoxiang Li graduated from the Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics at the University of Ottawa (Canada) in 2018. He holds Master of Arts and specializes in urban studies. In particular, he studies ethnic minority mobility in China by using spatial-temporal methods.

Huhua Cao is a cross-appointed full professor at the University of Ottawa in Canada. He specializes in urban studies and international development with the use of geostatistical and spatial methods. In recent years, Dr. Cao’s research has focused on engaging urban indigenous and ethnic minority peoples in urban contexts. He has directed various international research projects that have received significant funding from Canada, China, Cameroon and the European Union. Professor Cao has also published near 100 books, chapters, articles and reports related to urban and regional development while collaborating with academics throughout the world. Since 2014, as the copresident, Professor Cao has worked closely with the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) to organize a series of International Conference on Canadian, Chinese and African Sustainable Urbanization (ICCCASU). ICCCASU is an international think tank for exchange and cooperation on issues relating to sustainable urban development.
