Ph.D. Candidate, Humphrey School of Public Affairs (4th year student)

Advisor: Dr. Kathy Quick, Associate Professor

This paper discusses the effect that rural-urban migration and diversity resulting from it may be having on people’s trust in government. What explains the difference in people’s trust in government before and after they migrate to cities? This article examines this question in China, employing data from a large-N (33,160 individuals) panel survey -- China Family Panel Study (CFPS) conducted from 2008 to 2016, to seek both macro- and micro-level causes and consequences of rural-urban migrants’ declining political trust.
