about this item

Migration in Asia is leading to more marriages across nationalities. While traditional patterns show Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore as countries that receive marriage migrants, and the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and parts of mainland China supply marriage migrants, mostly women, these patterns are becoming more complex and complicated. The contributors to this volume explore the agency of women who migrate abroad. They show that the trajectories of marriage migrants are often not a simple movement from home to destination but can involve return, repeated, or extended migrations, and that these transitions that can alter geographies of power in economics, nationality, or ethnicity. Together, the contributors identify this emerging diaspora and its long-term consequences for families.
