By focusing on the case of mainland Chinese marriage migrants in Taiwan, the unique condition reserved to this group of spouses in order to assess similarities and differences with other contemporary movements for marriage in the island and in the region will be explored and the understanding of broader logics used to understand migration for marriage in the region could

also explain the emergence and evolution of the phenomenon of cross-Strait marriage migration in Taiwan. This presentation draws from ten months of ethnographic fieldwork based on in-depth interviews and participant

observation with cross-Strait marriage migrants and their families, civil society organizations’ practitioners and government officials carried out in Taipei

(Taiwan) between 2010 and 2011.
