Migration & Immigration: Listening List

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. We tried to choose episodes that cover diverse migration situations. We hope everyone enjoys a fruitful discussion from these episodes. We found so much great content, so we’ve included a lot of bonus listening if you care to delve deeper.
