Research on Italian emigrants and immigrants has evolved in the same epistemic space, asked the same questions and provided complementary answers that allow progress to be made in gene-migration studies based on three findings. The first is that the complexity of migration flows is a process that is becoming ever more complex, linked to a constant overlay of the gendered migratory arrangements; the second shows that power structures involve all women, both migrant and non-migrant; the third points out that the differences and similarities are not linked to binary oppositions (current/past migrant, migrant/non-migrant). The theoretical and methodological reflexivity developed around the issue of gender issues and migration in Italy makes it possible to grasp the gendered dimension as being instrumental in building knowledge on migration. This work shows the inadequacy of traditional explanatory models and points out that the study of migration must simultaneously take into account mobility and immobility, centrifugal and centripid forces, economic and cultural structures, administrative and political dimensions.
