Summary
This edited volume provides a comprehensive overview of rural-urban migration in Vietnam. It addresses a wide range of important topics, including Vietnam?s household registration system (ho khau), migration trends, remittance behaviour and social networking. In addition, it examines migrants? earnings, their children?s schooling, housing issues and their families? consumption behaviour in their destination cities.0The book is mainly based on new data from the Australian National University's?Study of Rural-Urban Migration in Vietnam with Insights from China and Indonesia? (VRUM) project, which identifies migrants from the large-scale, representative?Vietnam Household Living Standards Survey? 2012 (VHLSS2012). In addition to the data from the VRUM project, the book draws on other widely used data sources to provide a comprehensive picture of rural-urban migrants in Vietnam.0By highlighting the issues and challenges brought about by the large-scale rural-urban migration in Vietnam, the book helps researchers and policymakers more effectively formulate policies to respond to those challenges. Moreover, Vietnam?s experience can serve as lessons learnt to other transitional/developing countries
