L.Long's curator insight, February 16, 4:28 AM

The two industries that are the real backbone of globalization are transportation and communication.  What has accelerated the pace of global interconnectedness is the scale of these devices and their ubiquity in facilitating massive global commerce.

François Arnal's curator insight, September 26, 2013 2:54 AM

L'urbanisation de la Chine au cours des dernières décennies  est un phénomène massif par son  l'échelle et par sa vitesse. Dans les années 1980, dans une  Chine très "différente", il y avait moins de 200 millions de  personnes classées en population «urbaine» (un cinquième de la population totale). Cependant, d'ici 2011, 700 millions (la moitié de la population totale) vit dans les zones urbaines, tandis que la  population urbaine va continuer à croître dans le futur car on s'attend à 250 millions de travailleurs migrants  se déplaçant vers les villes d'ici 2030.

L'urbanisation, en Chine, est contrôlé par le système du hukou, un système d'enregistrement des ménages introduit en 1958. Le système du hukou lie juridiquement les travailleurs migrants à leur domicile en milieu rural et a été conçu pour garder les résidents ruraux travaillant sur l'exploitation.

La question de l'urbanisation est un élément clé dans les dicussions bilatérales sino-européennes et est également un domaine d'intérêt pour DRAGON-STAR.

Sally Egan's curator insight, October 4, 2013 1:31 AM

Amazing statistics on the urbanisationof China. A fascinating read to supplement work on global population studues.
