A Transnational Double Presence: Circular Migration between Ukraine and Italy

(p.187) Chapter 9 A Transnational Double Presence: Circular Migration between Ukraine and Italy
Circular Migration between Europe and its Neighbourhood

Francesca Alice Vianello

This chapter explores the phenomenon of circular migration between Ukraine and Italy. In particular, it investigates the circular migration of Ukrainian women, as they represent the majority of Ukrainians who reside in Italy. Interviews given by women who have moved to Italy since the second half of the 1990s are analysed, in order to identify their migratory trajectories and circular practices. Specifically, the analysis examines the social, emotional and economic reasons that are behind the migrants' choice of circular migratory patterns, as well as the legal and employment related obstacles encountered by migrants. In this chapter circular migration is understood as a specific way of reinterpreting the ‘double presence’ model – which usually identifies women's simultaneous presence in two different realities like paid labour and the family – in the transnational social space.
