Brazilians in London : ideology, social class and motivations for migration, settlement and return
MetadataShow full item record
The United Kingdom now boasts the largest Brazilian population in Europe, but so far the processes behind this relatively new migration stream remain undertheorized. An examination of Brazilian migration to London suggests that, although increased access to economic capital certainly plays a role in it, what migrants do with this capital may vary significantly and, further, that these differences are related to social class and ideology. The likelihood that they will settle or return is also linked to the degree to which they identify with the dominant ideology of the destination society.

Uma examinação da migração brasileira para Londres sugere que, embora o maior acesso ao capital econômico certamente desempenhe um papel importante, o que os migrantes fazem com esse capital pode variar significativamente e, além disso, essas diferenças estão relacionadas à classe social e à ideologia. A probabilidade de eles se estabelecerem ou retornarem também está ligado ao grau no qual se identificam com a ideologia dominante da sociedade de destino.
