A very interesting argument was put forward by Bronwen Manby in her kick-off post that ‘the problem of lack of access to citizenship should be addressed by developing local responses rather than national ones’. My first impression is that this would not work in China as it is unheard of that a Chinese local authority could pass such laws and policies. Citizenship/nationality (used interchangeably here) is a national issue and China is a unitary country. However, a second thought comes to mind that such an idea may not be that radical even for China given that each of Hong Kong,Macau and Taiwan has its own nationality or immigration laws and policies.
