1. this paper's topic is " One-child policy for Han Chinese
", which is a research paper from an anthropology class ( people and culture of china), and it is a second year university class. The original requirement of the paper topic is that the paper should present a detailed consideration of a specific aspect of culture or social life, with reference to one ethnic group. Thus, I choose the "one-child policy for Han Chinese
"; the one-child policy is only for Han Chinese
( a majority enthic group in China). The paper should not simply summerise available information, but consider a phenomenon or problem in light of an ethnological analysis.
2. Please use American Anthropologist or Current Anthropology style as citation guide, no footnotes or endnotes for citation.
3. Please do not use difficult vacabulary or terminology, although this is a second year university research paper, English is not my first language. However, the paper needs to have no grammer, spelling, punctuation mistakes, and needs to be well-organized, have good content and well-analyzied.
4. Finally, I already wrote a short proposal for the paper, I will send it following the requirements. Please read the proposal, and focus on the research questions at the end of the proposal. I did use some references for citation, but I did not mention it in here, because that just the idea i want to use, you can find these information in many different journal articles. In addition, you can know my writing skill level by reading it, I hope it is helpful for you writing the paper.
IMPORTANT: THIS IS CUSTOM RESEARCH SERVICE, PLEASE, WRITE THE PAPER JUST FOR ME, DO NO GIVE TO THE SAME ONE TO OTHERS!!! APPRECIATE!!!
China is an united multi-ethnic country, consisting of 56 ethnic groups and a huge population of 1.3 billion people that make up one fifth of the total world population. Han Chinese
are the majority of the entire population which comprise 91 percent of the population from Beijing in the north to Canton in the south and include the Hakka, Fujianese, Cantonese, and other groups. The rest of the population is divided into 55 official "minority" ethnic groups that are mostly concentrated along the borders, such as the Mongolians and Uyghurs in the north and the Zhuang, Yi, and Bai in southern China, near southeast Asia. Other groups, such as the Hui and Manchus, are scattered throughout the nation, and there are minorities in every province, region, and county.
China is constantly at war against its overpopulation problems. The rapid growing population is often being blamed for the country?s lack of development and backwardness. Thus, Chinese
government needed to make policies to combat the quick growing numbers of Chinese
citizens. In the early 1979, the Family Planning Commission of China implemented the ?one-child policy? as a solution for overpopulation. However, the ?one-child policy? is only applied to Han
and the minorities are not restricted by this policy. ?The one-child policy? basically stats that married couples in urban settings are limited to having only one child; married couples in rural areas are allowed to have two children if the first child is a girl. This is strictly enforced in the major cities, but rural governments tend to be more relaxed since extra labor is needed in farming communities. Nonetheless, fines are imposed on parents who want more than one child. With a population billion, the Chinese
view this as a practical policy.
The ?one-child policy? has both positive and negative consequences. However, this research paper will emphasize on the overall advantages and disadvantages of the ?one-child policy? in Han
Literature reviews should be done and the research questions should focus on : 1) do the benefits of the ?one-child policy? outweigh the problems? 2) How have the government and Han Chinese
solved the problems? 3) How will the government and Han Chinese
solve the current and the future problems?
