In much of Asia, marriage has meant a shift in place for women. As a consequence, territorial dislocation, at times over a considerable distance, has been integral to the life trajectories of young women in many parts of East and South Asia. This volume brings a gender-sensitive perspective to bear on aspects of marriage and migration in intra- and transnational contexts. In particular, the contributors consider: - how, given the specific rules of marriage and (post-marital) residence, the institution of marriage itself often entails women's migration; - how marriage can be used as an individual and family strategy to facilitate migration and, conversely, how migration may become an important factor in the making of marriages; - the fluid boundaries between matchmaking and trafficking in the context of migration; - the political economy of marriage transactions; and finally, more broadly, the impact of intra- and transnational migration on the institution of marriage, family relations and kinship networks.
