Abstract

The institutional divide of the new generation of rural migrant workers' citizenship in the era of big data has evolved into the status quo of the coexistence of institutional divides and digital divides. We analyze the native digital divide of new-generation migrant workers and the lack of digital capital caused by the derived digital divide; in the context of digitization, we analyze the dilemma performance of their citizenship in terms of their lifestyles, identities, and employment differences and similarities. Citizenship of new-generation migrant workers across the digital divide needs to be carried out in combination with policy support, educational empowerment, and training to narrow the gap between new-generation migrant workers and urban citizens and to share the dividends brought about by the development of the digital economy.
