Abstract or Description

This thesis is an analysis of political socialisation of the foreign spouses during the KMT Ma administration I & II in Central Taipei. The research looks at the way that their political socialisation was affected by changes to the curricular guidelines for their citizenship courses. It seeks to show that civic education policy implementation in Taiwan had an over-scaled nationalist bias that impacted on foreign spouse learners. Fieldwork by means of in-depth interviews and classroom observations is integrated into a baseline analysis of governmental and NGO public discourses, marital immigration regulations and relevant reports. The thesis explicates the underlying cleavages in the struggles over pathways to citizenship that have created a complex series of links in the political socialisation of new migrants. It thus examines how the Ma administrations addressed integration and dealt with related issues of multiculturalism. It is hoped that this study sheds new light upon the discrimination experienced by the learners which, in turn, motivated their empowerment through participation in socio-political movements against prejudice.
