Research has tended to focus on either marriage within settled, migrant communities or on marriages between citizens and migrants with different cultural and ethnic heritage. By drawing on a broad range of literature relating to cross-border marriage migration, this book aims to bridge the conceptual gap between these two streams of research and to place studies of cross-border marriage in a global context.

Throughout, the book emphasises the role of policy in shaping and gendering marriage migration and highlights how migrants use their personal agency to negotiate social and gender roles through marriage across borders. Key themes in the book are role of individual agency in negotiating marriage and migration and the experience of symbolic and actual violence faced by marriage migrants.
