Discrimination Against Poor Immigrant Workers in Vietnamese Urban Areas

PHAM VAN QUYET

Tóm tắt


Discrimination is one of the main obstacles to social inclusion faced by poor immigrant workers in urban cities of Vietnam nowadays. Identifying the nature of discrimination as well as the perception of immigrant workers on discrimination are necessary in order to find the appropriate measures to address this issue. This article analyses the discrimination faced by immigrant workers in some basic activities of the urban life. According to the authors, discrimination is one of the causes that solidify the disparities and unbeatable distance between the poor immigrants and urban communities. It is due to discrimination that the daily life of immigrant workers has become closed-up, distanced and disintegrated from that of the communities in which they reside and work in.
