Abstract (english)

This dissertation investigates female migratory practices between the Ukraine and Italy. The research aim is to explore how migrant women move across the trans-national space, mediating continuously between their ambitions and external obligations; both structural processes and family and community social ties.
The research is based on a trans-national perspective in order to analyse the migratory process from a twofold point of view, that of the departing country and that of the destination country, and therefore to comprehend the phenomenon multiple dimensions. The methodology adopted during the research was the ethnographic one; the semi-structured interview, oriented to recollect the migratory experiences narrations, joined with the realization of some periods of field work in the Ukraine. In total 45 narrative interviews with migrants, returned migrants and migrants' relatives were gathered, and 24 interviews with privileged informants.
The main analytical issues of the dissertation are: the tension between individual autonomy and external conditionings, and the processes of commodification and de-commodification of social relations. Regarding the first question, the different strategies adopted by Ukrainian migrants during their trans-national mobility course were analysed. While regarding the second question, two phenomena characterizing this migration were studied, some forms of social exchange monetization and the remittances earmarking.
