2. Project meeting planning

A project meeting planning was held in May 2008 in Hanoi with all collaborators. During this meeting, collaborators from Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Vietnam and Canada shared their work and collaboratively planned the second year of the project.

Also, a public seminar was held to present the policy frameworks and some papers from members of the group.


3. Survey on impacts of marriage migration on sending households and communities

In August 2007, Tran Giang Linh, Dr. Daniele Bélanger, Dr. Le Bach Duong, Dr. Nguyen Thanh Liem and Dr. Khuat Thu Hong planned and organized fieldwork on the impact of marriage migration on sending households and communities – case studies of three rural communes of Southern Vietnam. The fieldwork included a survey, indepth interviews and focus group discussion, all supervised by Tran Giang Linh. Fieldwork was conducted in Thot Not District (Can Tho City) and completed at the end of August 2007. Tran Giang Linh wrote her MA thesis based on the data. Also, a number of papers were produced and presented at workshops in Canada.



4. Launching workshop



The first activity of the project is the launching workshop, which was held on July 10, 2007, at the Vietnam Development Information Center in Hanoi, Vietnam. The purpose of the launching workshop is three-fold: (1) to publicly introduce the project and our institutions as key project implementing agencies; (2) to learn from experiences of other organizations working on similar topics; and (3) to networking with academic, government, and civic organizations and individuals.
