Espaços de religiosidade no Porto : o seu papel na integração dos imigrantes brasileiros
Maria João Oliveira
AbstractAs a process of numerous changes and ruptures, migrations often emerge as critical situations of migrants’ social integration in the arrival societies. In this context, it confers an important role the belonging to relational networks which are understood as elements that potentially facilitate the immigrants’ participation in the new interactive order. In particular, we will reflect on how different spaces of religiosity – specifically the Portuguese Catholic Organization for Migration (OCPM) and the Pentecostal Missions Church (IPM), an evangelical church of Brazilian origin – contribute to enhance the formation of networks and the social integration of Brazilian immigrants in Oporto.
