Abstract

Este artigo discute como os migrantes brasileiros em Londres, que migraram com o projeto inicial de trabalhar, economizar e regressar, reformulam os seus objetivos após um tempo de estadia na sociedade recetora. O texto pretende compreender os limites apresentados pelos estudos migratórios brasileiros centrados no modelo teórico push-pull, os quais destacam fatores macroeconómicos como razões principais para definir a imigração brasileira. Por meio de observação participante e entrevistas, foi possível compreender de que forma esses migrantes, uma vez introduzidas novas prioridades nas suas vidas, redefinem os seus estilos de vida em Londres, deixando para segundo plano a ideia inicial de trabalhar/ganhar dinheiro/retornar. This article reflects on how Brazilians in London, who moved on the migratory project of working, saving money and return, readapt their aims after a period in the host society. Therefore, the text aims to understand the limits of analysis on Brazilian immigration based on the theoretical framework push-pull, which highlight economic reasons as the main points to define Brazilian migrants. Through participative observations and interviews, it was possible to comprehend how Brazilians once introduced new priorities in their lives, and thus reshape their lifestyle in London, their initial idea of working/saving money become somehow secondary.
