Asian Cross-border Marriage Migration: Demographic Patterns and Social Issues. 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 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. 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 decades, 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.
