Article 1

Description: China’s cities have massively increased in size in recent decades, improving the living standards of hundreds of millions of new urbanites. But counterintuitively, most of these cities are not dense enough. China has a problem with urban sprawl, and its system of “apartheid without the racism” hinders rural citizens from achieving the Chinese Dream.  

Intent of Session: 

Part 1 of 2 - exploring the divide between Rural and Urban citizens of China and the barriers put in place to keep rural migration at bay. Programs such as 户籍 (he hukou) are designed to insulate larger cities for the most educated, employable, and prosperous citizens of the country. Free domestic migration is a luxury for some and an insurmountable hole for others. With stark social outcomes in rural regions, how will China take the top place as the most prosperous nation while not leaving its rural citizens behind? We'll explore these topics together in this week's session.
