Rural Migrants' Perceptions of Public Safety Protections in Urban China: The Case of Tianjin


  • Hong Lu
  • Shunfeng Song


One of the by-products of economic reforms is the unprecedented number of floating population from rural to urban areas. These rural migrants have become a new class that experiences "institutionalized exclusion" in their adoptive cities in areas including housing, work, and social entitlements. The "institutionalized exclusion" also spills over in another important areaâpublic safety protectionsâand rural migrants receive inadequate protections provided by the police and the neighborhood committee.
