This chapter shows how the migration of women involves 'metaphors of home', that is movement of homes in terms of a movement physically in space, the movements and inter-relationships between these spaces and the impacts that the related symbolic and identity shifts have on women's lives in different ways. Ethnic pluralism exists in all societies to a greater or lesser extent, but the phenomena of migration, as well as diasporization, produce ethnic diversity in new ways. Migration can be seen as important in terms of testing the boundaries of 'who belongs to the community' or the nation. The bulk of the literature produced in Europe has been on post-war migration to western Europe. New migration to Europe and particularly southern Europe in the 1990s has turned the attention of scholars once again to migration processes. For gender as a relational social category is implicated in a range of social relations linked to the process of migration.
