Media Dilemmas and Countermeasures During the Citizenization of Land-Lost Farmers

Jianhua HUANG


Urbanization is a must-taken rod for China’s modernization. To help realize the citizenization of land-lost farmers who cannot return to the countryside is an important part of urbanization. As an important tool for individuals to enter society, mass media play an important role in the integration of land-lost farmers into the urban area. However, the citizenization process of land-lost farmers is faced with media dilemmas, including inadequate media literary, lack of media right of speech, stigmatization of media image and so on. This paper solves the above problems from three perspectives, namely the government, media and lost-land farmers, and puts forward adjustment and improvement suggestions from the above three perspectives at an attempt to genuinely help realize citizenization of land-lost farmers.
