Les migrations par le mariage : épouses souhaitées mais stigmatisées : État de la littérature abordant la question sous l’angle du travail reproductif et de la menace : focus sur l’Asie de l’Est

Abstract : Marriage Migrations: Wives Desired but Stigmatised. A Literature Review Examining the Issue from the Perspective of Reproductive Work and Threat: Focus on East Asia
This literature review article examines migrations caused by exogamous transnational marriages, the rise in which coincides with the globalisation of the marriage market from the 1980s, and which are characterised by a strong overrepresentation of migrant women. The article focuses on studies that integrate this phenomenon into a wider analysis of the globalisation of reproductive work and of the bio-political control of female migrants. It reveals how studies that describe these migrations as a source of a much-needed workforce, and those that analyse how migrated wives are targeted by discourse presenting them as an idea of threat complement each other.
