Produktbeschreibung
This volume, the first in the series entitled Women and Migration in Asia, focuses on Asian women`s experience of immigration and the impact this has on their identity in the context of transnational migration. It highlights the gendered dimension of migration, the differential experience of men and women, and the consequences of this for women. It also examines the complexities that women encounter in the process of migration, emphasizing both the constraints that women experience, and the strategies they deploy in making life in the new country more bearable. The volume draws attention to the fluid nature of a migrant woman`s identity while also pointing out that this fluidity and her identity are regulated to a certain extent by the state and various social institutions. Moreover, it examines the manner in which she negotiates with these larger institutions and structures-such as the state, employers, the community and welfare institutions-and how these engagements help in defining and restructuring her identity in different ways.
