International Marriages and Marital Citizenship.

International Marriages and Marital Citizenship.

Cet ouvrage analyse les migrations par le mariage des femmes d’Asie du Sud-Est et les obstacles que les femmes rencontrent dans leur accès à la citoyenneté dans leurs pays de destination, ce que les auteures désignent par l’expression « citoyenneté maritale ». Les enquêtes de terrain réunies dans cet ouvrage permettent de mieux saisir un phénomène largement féminin et qui s’inscrit dans le durcissement des politiques migratoires.
