dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the rural-urban labor migration patterns in China in relation to the different approaches to migration theories developed from non-Chinese sources. It concludes that the migration patterns and behaviors in China conform to some but not all of the theoretical frameworks. It indicates that economic factors alone don’t provide a complete explanation for the gendered difference in migration behaviors. The influence of the ideological system, social norms, and institutional policies must be taken into consideration in the examination of migration patterns and behaviors in the context of China.en_US
