Researching Slovenian Emigration from the Perspective of Gendered Migration

The article presents how Slovenian women emigrants and women immigrants to Slovenia have become an important part of migration studies in Slovenia. The research has focused on gendered migration and revealed different ways of structuring po­w­er relationships, social practices and institutions organized according to the gender principle. The article also focuses on methodological development and emphasises the narrative and autobiographical approaches, which brought the voices of women migrants from the past and the present to the analysis of migration, thus enriching various disciplines with personal experiences, individual interpretations and the variety of emotions of women on the move.
KEY WORDS: gender, migration, Slovenian women migrants, methodology
