Abstract:

The lecture provides a basic understanding of Vietnamese migration to Taiwan that attempts to analyse and explain various phenomena such as push and pull factors shaping Vietnamese migration to Taiwan; decision process leading to the migration; historical trajectory of Vietnamese migration to Taiwan; brokerage agents that dominate the process of Vietnamese migration to Taiwan; or living and working conditions of Vietnamese people in the country. Also, reactions of local people to the Vietnamese migration and its impacts on the Taiwanese society and job market are explained.

The lecture shows that Vietnamese diaspora living in Taiwan consists mainly of three main social groups: migrant workers, Vietnamese spouses and students. At the same time, Vietnamese migration is depicted as (more or less) self-feeding industry producing ethno-cultural prejudices, social inequalities and various forms of illegalities.
