We used structural equation modeling to examine the influencing factors and mediating mechanism in the process of migrant children’s social integration. Participants were 437 migrant children in Shanghai. The results showed that as a risk factor, perceived discrimination had a significant negative effect on the migrant children’s social integration. Intergroup permeability had a mediation effect in the relationship between migrant children’s perceived discrimination and social integration. Self-esteem moderated the mediation effect of intergroup permeability, and the strength of this mediation impact increased as the level of self-esteem did. Thus, intergroup permeability had a moderating mediation effect on the social integration of migrant children.
