The changing political economy of migrant evictions in China

Abstract
In the wake of a fire incident that killed 19 migrants in Beijing in November 2017, the municipality government evicted possibly hundreds of thousands migrants, leaving them temporarily homeless. Although migrant evictions had occurred periodically, this round of ousting represents something new. Previous evictions had been a means used by local government to increase land value through cyclical demolition. The removal in 2017 is however associated with the agenda of ending this pattern of accumulation-through-demolition and distancing local government from business. This eviction campaign reveals new contradictions brought about by the radical recentralization of state power that started around 2013. By examining how different social groups reacted to the eviction, this paper also seeks to rethink the notions of justice and power based on people’s lived experiences.
