Market Reform and the New Urban Poverty: The Political Economy of Restructuring the Chinese City
Piyasa Reformu ve Yeni Kent Yoksulluğu: Çin Kentlerinin Yeniden Yapılan(dırıl)masının Ekonomi Politiği

Kerem Gökten [1]


As a result of economic reform and openness policy China is moving towards becoming the urban society since 1978. Changing economic structure has led to dramatic changes in the relations of production and naturally in labour relations. Urban space has drawn attention as an area which has seen these changes directly. This study will initially focus on income inequality caused by capitalist reforms. After that the new urban poverty that emerged in Chinese cities, which have much more dynamic and unequal economic and social appearance compared to the past, will be addressed.

Çin 1978 yılından bu yana sahne olduğu ekonomik reform ve dışa açıklık politikası sonucunda kent toplumu olma yolunda ilerlemektedir. Değişen iktisadi yapı üretim ilişkilerinde ve bunun doğal sonucu olarak çalışma ilişkilerinde dramatik değişikliklere yol açmıştır. Kent mekânı bu değişikliklerin doğrudan görüldüğü bir alan olarak dikkatleri çekmektedir. Bu çalışmada ilk olarak kapitalist reformların yol açtığı gelir dağılımı eşitsizlikleri üzerinde durulacaktır. Bunun ardından eskisine kıyasla çok daha dinamik ve bir o kadar da eşitsiz iktisadi-sosyal görünüm kazanan Çin kentlerinde ortaya çıkan yeni kent yoksulluğu olgusu ele alınacaktır.
