Life after love: Thai women married to German men open up about their lives in Berlin

South China Morning Post, 25 Sep

A 2018 study by Dr Woramon Sinsuwan, a career diplomat, found that almost nine in 10 Thai migrants in Germany are women, with a significant number being marriage migrants. As part of the NTU WKWSCI overseas reporting programme Go-Far, journalism student Lim Li Ting spoke to some of these Thai women about their lives in Berlin. These women face challenges settling into life in Germany, as they have to navigate cultural differences, learn a new language, find jobs in the German labour market, and establish their own cultural space – often with their partners in tow.
