Assessing the impact of internal labour migration on intergenerational support, health and income: the cases of China and South Africa
- Start date: 01 December 2011
- End date: 30 November 2012
The project brings together researchers from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, the University of Witwatersrand/ Agincourt DSS, the Africa Centre for Health and Population Studies and the University of Southampton to investigate the patterns and determinants of internal migration in China and South Africa, with a particular focus on the implications for populations ‘left behind’ in sending areas, particularly the well-being of children and older people.
The project aims to build a network of researchers spanning theUK-China- South Africa, including early careers researchers and established academics. The research will analyse data from hitherto ‘hard to access’ datasets and the project includes a capacity building element on the analysis of large and complex datasets.
