Ethnic Dissent and Empowerment: Economic Migration between Vietnam and Malaysia (Studies of World Migrations)


Vietnam annually sends a half million laborers to work at low-skill jobs abroad. Angie Ngc Trn concentrates on ethnicity, class, and gender to examine how migrant workers belonging to the Kinh, Hoa, Hr, Khmer, and Chm ethnic groups challenge a transnational process that coerces and exploits them. Focusing on migrant laborers working in Malaysia, Trn looks at how they carve out a third space that allows them a socially accepted means of resistance to survive and even thrive at times.
