AbstractDit is een interdisciplinair en vergelijkend onderzoek naar de snelle toename van migratie ten gevolge van de internationale huwelijken binnen Aziatische landen. Het boek bevat diepgravend onderzoek door wetenschappers op het gebied van demografie, sociologie, antropologie en pedagogie, inclusief demografische studies gebaseerd op grootschalige enquĂȘtes over migratie en huwelijksvormen. Daarnast bevat het kleinschaligere casestudies over de leefwijze van migranten. De bijdragen onderzoeken en betwisten de bestaande aannames in het immigratiebeleid en de hedendaagse dialoog en leggen een fundament voor verder vergelijkend onderzoek.
The past two decades have witnessed a rapid increase of cross-border marriage migration between Southeast- and East Asia. The majority of these marriages are between are men of wealthier countries/regions and women from economically less developed ones. The phenomena of "brides from Asia" in Japan, "Chosonjok brides" and "mixed marriages" in South Korea and "foreign and mainland brides" in Taiwan, all attract huge media attention, cause public panic, and challenge these societies whose population and immigration policies are based on mono-ethnic principles. Despite huge scholarly interest, we know very little about who these women are and why they marry and migrate. This book provides an overview of the demographic patterns of, and social issues related to cross-border marriages in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan Hong Kong, Thailand and Vietnam in the past two decade,s with contributions from scholars in the fields of demography, sociology, anthropology and social work. With its diversified methodologies and approaches, this volume will interest scholars and students of migration and gender studies. It also informs policy-makers and concerned civil society groups and practitioners.
