Title European Migrant Professionals in Chinese Global Cities : A Diversified Labour Market Integration
Author Camenisch, Aldina ; Suter, Brigitte
Date 2019
English abstract
Since the early 2000s, Chinese metropolises have been emerging as hubs for the national and global economy. They attract increasing numbers of foreigners with diverse socio-economic and educational backgrounds who tend to immigrate independently of the Chinese initiatives focused on "foreign talents". Our analysis contributes to the understanding of these migrants' integration into the labour market. Through a Bourdieusian capital lens, this article unpacks the access to the labour market and occupational positions of Swiss and Swedish migrant professionals in mainland China. Differentiated by how they can capitalize upon their educational, occupational, social and cultural resources in this specific context, the article distinguishes between three categories: corporarate expatriates, local hires and entrepreneurs and concludes with policy recommendations to stabilize their residence conditions.
