The Human Impact of Migration in Asia
Hundreds of millions of Asians migrate to other countries or within their own countries for work. HKU scholars have been studying the impact on families and the workers themselves when they leave their homes and all that is familiar behind; assessing the economic and wider societal impact of migrant labour on Hong Kong and China; and seeking to mitigate some of the more negative effects through a project to empower domestic workers in Hong Kong with knowledge.
