Yan Liu on: Borrowing the Dragon’s Might? New Chinese Immigrants in the Eastern Caribbean

Yan Liu, Department of Sociology, Maxwell School, Syracuse University 

Since the 1990s, a significant wave of Chinese entrepreneurial immigrants has flowed into the small islands in the Eastern Caribbean. The migratory flow coincides with the expansion of Chinese aid and development projects in this region. Yan Liu’s field research investigates how recent Chinese immigrants integrate into local societies and considers the role of the Chinese state in this process.

Yan Liu is a doctoral student in sociology whose academic interests include international migration, globalization, education, aging, and health. He is particularly interested in the interplay between migration flows out of China and the expanding role of the Chinese state around the world. His dissertation project explores recent Chinese immigration in the Eastern Caribbean, and especially the role of both the sending and receiving states.
