Migration & Immigration: Listening List
This topic is very personal for our Shanghai PBC members. We’re all migrants in one form or another…”expats” living in China from all over the world, migrants from other cities to Shanghai, “overseas returnees” who’ve lived, worked and/or studied abroad.

As death can become a dark subject, we hope the selections just get you reflecting on how your own beliefs and experiences compare to those you’ll encounter.
