With the acceleration of urbanization process in China, the minorities began torush into cities to seek opportunities for their new lives, in this paper we call them"urban scattered ethnic minorities". These urban scattered minorities are not only anintegral part of a city, but also a special group with different languages, foods,cultures, customs and religious beliefs.Therefore, it’s a new question faced by thegovernment that how to manage the urban scattered minorities properly.In this paper,the management of scattered ethnic minorities in Shenzhen is studied based ongrounded theory.The author analyzed data from detailed interviews to present a"three-stage" view of Shenzhen scattered minorities management, and summarized a"Shenzhen model" of this type of management. After comparing differentmanagement of several other countries and domestic cities, this paper tried to build ageneral framework of model for the governance of urban scattered ethnic minorities.Minority rights theory and governance theory are used as the theoretical perspective.This paper then made a deep view of the "Shenzhen model" and put forward ideas andsuggestions for improving the management of Shenzhen scattered ethnic minorities inperspective of the general framework of model.This paper accumulated amount of first-hand material by extensive collecting ofdocuments and detailed interviews,and then the author coded the data selected fromthe material as the rule of grounded theory. Core categories and concepts wereemerged from the data in this coding procedure, such as "the specificity andintegration of the scattered ethnic minorities"," the stakeholders of the management"," the changing course of the management "and other categories and concepts.
