CALL FOR PAPERS - Marriage in Asia: Trends, Determinants and ImplicationsCulture
This conference is jointly organised by the Changing Family in Asia Cluster, Asia Research Institute, the Family, Children and Youth Cluster, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, National University of Singapore, & Scientific Group on “Marriage Transition in Asia”, Asian Population Association.
Asian countries have witnessed significant social, political, economic and technological changes over recent decades, albeit from widely differing starting points and at vastly different rates. While similar forces continue to shape changes in Asian societies, including the institution of marriage, sharp differences in marriage patterns and systems persist throughout the region. This conference aims to explore why these differences in marriage endure in light of similar forms of social change across the region. In doing so, the conference aims to foster a more in-depth analysis of marriage. Marriage here is understood to refer more broadly to union formation which can also include both cohabitation and unions which take place without formal marriage ceremonies.
