This study models the effects on attitudes and behavioral interaction of intergroup contact between minority-status off-farm migrants and majority-status local urban residents in urban China. Responses from a sample of 548 migrants to Fuzhou indicate positive effects of friendship contact on attitudes and positive effects of both friendship and non-friendship contact on behaviour. Results imply that while contact per se may improve intergroup functioning in urban China, it takes more intimate contact to translate improved intergroup functioning into improved intergroup relations in this urban setting.
