The population of the People’s Republic of China, founded in 1949, is characterized by ethnic and cultural heterogeneity. In addition to the Han nationality, there are 55 other ethnic groups, the so-called recognized national minorities. The People’s Republic is not a country of immigration: foreign nationals constitute only 0.05 percent of the total population. So far there are no internationally comparable instruments for the management of migration and integration of immigrants. Chinese leaders see their task in integration policy rather as facing the political, economic and socio-cultural challenges that have resulted from the historical multinational nature of China.
