Though the most common source of long-term migration in countries which permit it, family migration has until recently attracted little attention from academics and policy makers due in part to its conceptualization as female and a dependent form of migration that is of little relevance to the labour market. However, during the past decade there has been a growing body of academic literature generated through a collective interest in transnational migration (Bryceson and Vuorela 2002); international marriages, including those by men moving as the imported spouse (Charsley 2011, Williams 2010); gender, generation and families in migration (Kraler et al. 2011); migrant families and multicultural societies (Grillo 2008), and families caring across borders (Baldassar et al. 2007).
