3. Résumé


« This thesis consists of two manuscripts. The first manuscript reviews empirical studies on Asian transnational families in English-speaking countries in the last two decades, provides critical analysis of the content and methodologies employed in the studies and makes recommendations for future research. The second manuscript reports the results of a qualitative study that aimed to explore the core essence of Taiwanese transnational youth’s experiences adapting to the dual household arrangement in Vancouver. More specifically, the study seeks to answer the following questions: (1) How did Taiwanese transnational youth understand their family’s decision to enter a transnational arrangement?; (2) How did Taiwanese transnational youth’s family dynamics and individual familial relationships change over time?; and (3) How has the experience of transnational migration affected Taiwanese transnational youth’s sense of identity and their plans for the future? Implications for future research and practice are also discussed. » (p. 3)
