Seminar paper from the year 2020 in the subject Social Work, grade: 2.0, University of Applied Sciences at Schweinfurt (Faculty of Applied Social Sciences: International Social Work with Refugees and Migrants (M. A.)), language: English, abstract: This research uses the Ethnography method to analyse the integration of the so called “mail order brides” based on interviews held with eight different Southeast Asian women. These women were four Vietnamese, one Chinese, one Malaysian, one Indonesian, and one woman from Myanmar who had lived in Taiwan for more than 20 years. The interviews about their experiences were conducted in their working place or at home. Furthermore, this research includes an observation conducted during the interview placing attention on how they react to the Taiwanese society. The observation and information from the interviews were summarized in a research diary which also included a self-reflection of the researcher. A focus is put on the marriage life of the New Inhabitant woman and their integration into the Taiwanese society. From the 1960s until the 1990s, Taiwan’s government did not have extensive laws in place to protect these migrants. Private agencies abused this opportunity to profit excessively, without thinking of how the new life in Taiwan would be like for the “mail-order brides”. In the beginning of the 1990s, the Taiwanese government started to put some policies into effect to tackle and limit this new phenomenon. The Taiwanese policy changed again in 2004 when the Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Education publicly denounced these transnational marriages as troublesome and urged the “foreign brides” to control their fertility, as their children’s poor educational level would deteriorate the education level of the Taiwanese population.

The Taiwan Experience

I have mentioned elsewhere that the book can serve as a reference for how the world's final few remaining one-party states will democratise. As this book is a narration of my personal experiences, this may not be obvious at first.

This book is the first of three covering Taiwan's gradual evolution over several decades from a one-party dictatorship to a vibrant multi-party democracy. It deals with the social as well as political changes that have taken place in Taiwan, as seen from the point of view of a foreigner and a Taiwan citizen. It covers both social and political changes, and provides insight into present-day political circumstances as well as many other aspects of life in Taiwan.A foreigner and a Taiwan citizen? Two people? No, just one. I arrived in Taiwan on a British passport in 1986 and swapped my British nationality for Taiwan (ROC) nationality about 10 years ago.The book first gives the history of Taiwan to provide the background necessary to understand the complex present-day circumstances of this island. Then, the political circumstances and developments from 1986 to 1992 are narrated in Part Two from the point of view of an initially rather reluctant observer. Part Three focuses more on social change during this same time period. These years represent Taiwan's initial opening up from a society that had been under martial law for nearly four decades, the longest period any country in the world had suffered martial law at the time. Book Two will cover the years from 1992 to 2003, and draw comparisons with other countries in the region, particularly the other three of the four 'Asian Tigers'; South Korea, Hong Kong, and Singapore. At the time of this writing, Taiwan is going to the polls in the 2018 so-called 'nine-in-one' local elections. Apart from the elections themselves, there are 10 referendums. Even I will cast a vote shortly, for the first time in my life. Public participation in the administration of Taiwan has reached unprecedented levels. But it hasn't always been this way...
