Migration from China has fundamentally changed in the past 25 years. Much has been written on the benefits and threats of different types of Chinese migration flows for receiving countries. Almost equally much has been written about the many forms of Chinese transnationalism and cosmopolitanism brought forth by the new Chinese migration. This introductory essay discusses the new types of migratory flows emanating from China with a focus on ethnic identity formation, competition and cooperation between different migrant Chinese groups, both new and old, in different settings in Europe, North America and Africa.
