This study examines the Northeastern provinces, where close to two million Koreans represent the most important non-Han ethnic community. Relatively recent immigrants, their historical and cultural background is closer to that of the Han Chinese than that of most other non-Han nationalities. This regional case study illustrates not only the limits but the achievements of the Chinese Communist party's nationality policy, and demonstrates the importance of going beyond a macro-analysis of Chinese policies to show what insights can be gained by focusing on a specific area of study. Regional studies can also facilitate the analysis of the subtleties of China's ethnic diversity and the difficulty of generalizing the results of nationality policy implementation.
