Abstract

Abstract:

Analyzing marriage migration in Asia from a gender perspective, the article aims to explore the causes and consequences of marriage migration in light of gender, examining and identifying the pattern and dynamics of marriage migration in the context of gendered structures of receiving and sending countries. The article focuses on marriage migration between South Korea and Vietnam, in particular Vietnamese women’s migration to marry Korean men. The analysis addresses the systemic aspect of marriage migration along with gender, and the aspect in which the interaction of the gendered demand of and supply for migration produces the migratory movement of Vietnamese women to South Korea, while rendering marriage migration the gendered relationship between South Korea and Vietnam.
