Managing Internal Migration In Modern China: Regional Interests, Accommodation, And Forced Removal, Bryan Winter 2020 University of North Georgia

Managing Internal Migration In Modern China: Regional Interests, Accommodation, And Forced Removal, Bryan Winter

International Social Science Review

This paper asks two primary questions surrounding internal migration in China. First, how have the PRC’s tactics of prohibiting and managing internal migration towards the cities changed over time? To answer this, the paper takes a chronologically descriptive approach concerning the geographic and political history of the PRC’s attempts at suppressing, controlling, and managing rural-to-urban migration as well as how those attempts have changed over a period of roughly seventy years. Early on, the PRC relied on forcefully repatriating migrants back to the countryside. Despite being much more flexible today, massive campaigns to expel migrants from the cities ...

Cultural Value Orientation, Social Networking Site (Sns) Use, And Homesickness In International Students, Senel Poyrazli, Olufunmike B. Devonish 2020 University of North Georgia

Cultural Value Orientation, Social Networking Site (Sns) Use, And Homesickness In International Students, Senel Poyrazli, Olufunmike B. Devonish

International Social Science Review

This study explores the relations between cultural value orientation, social networking site (SNS) usage intensity, and homesickness among a sample of international students studying in the United States. The results of this study determined that individuals high in collectivism and familism reported significantly more SNS usage in general. Other results revealed that students with high levels of individualism had significantly lower levels of homesickness. In addition, students with higher levels of homesickness reported a higher level of SNS usage with people back home. Based on the results this paper discusses implications and suggest interventions that could be used with international ...


A Gravity Model Of Civic Deviance: Justice, Natural Duties, And Reparative Responsibilities, Woojin Lim 2020 University of North Georgia

A Gravity Model Of Civic Deviance: Justice, Natural Duties, And Reparative Responsibilities, Woojin Lim

International Social Science Review

This paper presents a “gravity model” of civic deviance and the principle of reparative responsibilities, addressing the question of when citizens are justified in shirking their civic obligations. Provided an unjust society, this paper raises the proposal that principled civic deviance (CD) should be, at the very least, permissible to varying levels as determined by a gravity equation. In select cases, it is arguable that CD may be obligatory. The gravity model, which sets to define the degree of permissible CD, features considerations such as the unfairness of the basic social structure, the individual extent of injustice faced, and the ...
