Migratory paths and life trajectories of descendants of chinese immigrants
AbstractThe number of Chinese immigrants in Portugal has been rising substantially since the first decade of the 21st century. Their ensuing sedentarisation and that of their descendants raises the question of how their social integration into Portuguese society has been developing. The present article’s goal is to analyse some of the key dimensions of the life of descendants of Chinese immigrants: immigratory trajectory, family context, academic path, and labour market insertion. The author use discourses recorded in semi-structured interviews of young descendants. The final section of the article presents a number of questions for future reflection on the topic.
