Migration and the Globalisation of Chinese Capital

The globalisation of capital from the People’s Republic of China has been accompanied by a growing range of human flows.

These flows play different roles in the global geography of capital from China, carrying with them distinct modalities of labour relations that involve both Chinese and non-Chinese actors.
