Marriage Migrants (MM)



Marriage migrants, or those who marry foreigners and live outside their home countries, need to be protected and must not be discriminated. To date, thousands (many of whom are women) leave their home countries through marriage and face different forms of discrimination, exploitation and domestic violence in countries where they are.

APMM initiated the formation of Action Network for Marriage Migrants’ Rights and Empowerment (AMM♀RE) composed of grassroots organizations of marriage migrants and their advocates in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Canada, Europe and USA. APMM Is the secretariat of this network
