Children of Italian migrants in postwar Turin and Marseille: a comparison on gender inequalities between internal migration and migration abroad

The research will compare the social trajectories of children of immigrants from Southern Italy to Marseille and Turin in the second postwar period, with a particular attention to school and work careers and with a gender perspective. The aim is to investigate differencies and similarities, shed light on integration processes of migrant families and their children, and explore the social mechanisms generating different outcomes. The comparison between internal migration and migration abroad is rarely taken into account in research, but it offers the opportunity to analyse in different institutional contexts the effects on social trajectories of the migration process in itself, focusing on factors other than those of cultural difference and of national origin. Such unusual perspective of comparison might contribute to extend, from a historical point of view, the intense international scientific debate on migration and second generations, which is assuming a growing interest both in academic research and in national and local political agendas.
