This Handbook provides a unique collection of new and original research on internal and international Chinese migration and its effects on the sense of belonging of migrants. Learn More

  9. Handbook on East Asian Social Policy

    Handbook on East Asian Social Policy

    Edited by Misa Izuhara
    Dramatic socio-economic transformations over the last two decades have brought social policy and social welfare issues to prominence in many East Asian societies. Since the 1990s and in response to national as well as global pressure, there have been substantial developments and reforms in social policy in the region but the development paths have been uneven. Until recently, comparative analysis of East Asian social policy tends to have focused on the established welfare state of Japan and the emerging welfare regimes of four ‘Tiger Economies’. Much of the recent debate indeed preceded China’s re-emergence onto the world economy. In this context, this Handbook brings China more fully into the contemporary social policy debates in East Asia. Organised around five themes from welfare state developments, to theories and methodologies, to current social policy issues, the Handbook presents original research from leading specialists in the fields, and provides a fresh and updated perspective to the study of social policy.

    A Handbook of Terrorism and Insurgency in Southeast Asia

    Edited by Andrew T.H. Tan
    This timely and significant book seeks to explain the deep-seated complexities of terrorism and insurgency in Southeast Asia.
