应时代的呼唤,深圳当代社会观察研究所(简称“ICO”)于2001年3月创办于深圳,她的使命是为从农村进城的数亿工人提供资源与机会,改变他们的劳动地位,并因此提升他们的社会地位。

过去三十年,推动中国经济快速增长的动力之一,就是数亿从农村转移到城市,从中西部农村地区流入东部沿海城镇地区的廉价劳动力,中国官方称之为“农民工”。
尽管他们对经济的发展做出了巨大的贡献,但是他们的基本权益却经常受到侵犯,他们的声音也一直被忽略。更严重的是,他们没有机会在城市安家乐业。这些日益增长的不平等正在成为工人骚动和社会不稳定的根源。

In response to these current challenges, the Institute of Contemporary Observation (referred to as”ICO”) was founded in March 2001 in Shenzhen. Its mission is to provide these migrant workers with resources and opportunities to change their labour status in order to enhance their social status.

In the past 3 decades, China has achieved its rapid growth and become an emerging world economic power by exploitation of the cheap domestic rural-urban migrant workers to work in taking-off industries. Despite their contribution, the labor’s rights of migrant workers are neglected and their voices largely ignored. In addition, they are excluded from social welfare and security system with little opportunity to settle down in the urban society. These growing inequalities have caused troubled emotions among migrant workers and social unrest across China.
