Project Details

Description

The research programme on the role and meaning of neighbourhood in contemporary Chinese society has been extended with the award of a new grant by the City University of Hong Kong with additional support from the British Academy.

Ray Forrest will be working with Adrienne La Grange and Yip Ngai Ming (City University) on a project which develops the work on neighbourhood change which has been undertaken in Hong Kong. Guangzhou is one of the fastest growing cities in the world and this work will explore issues of cohesion and community in this particularly dynamic urban context with substantial immigration and new development.

At the core of the new project is a social survey of 1000 individuals spread across three neighbourhood types (older community in city centre, newer commercial housing, work unit housing).
