Abstract

* Funded by the Singapore Ministry of Education Academic Research Fund (Tier 1), Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences’ Migration Cluster at the National University of Singapore and a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada International Research Workshop Grant. Forced migration and refugee experience are neglected aspects in the study of Chinese migration. While the subject of Chinese migration has attracted a great deal of scholarly attention in recent years, to date nearly all of this attention has been directed toward understanding the voluntary movement of people in relation to economic opportunities, diasporic networks, and the forces of globalization. This approach has contributed greatly to the understanding of migration motives and patterns. However, it overlooks the fact that many, perhaps most, of the ethnic Chinese who have migrated across national borders since the Second World War have done so in the context of war, revolutionary upheavals and discriminatory legislation and practices aimed specifically at Chinese minorities. Scholars have recently begun to examine in detail the vast scale and tremendous suffering experienced by hundreds of thousands of Chinese war refugees during the War of Resistance Against Japan (1937-45) (MacKinnon 2008, Schoppa 2011). However, the movement and experiences
