Interview with João Peixoto
João Peixoto is Full Professor at ISEG, Universidade de Lisboa (Lisbon School of Economics & Management). He belongs to the Research Centre in Economic and Organizational Sociology (SOCIUS/CSG). His main research interests are international migration, demography and economic sociology. Within the conversation with João Peixoto we discussed how all along his academic studies the Portuguese emigration was a constant focal interest. In a detailed way he tells us about the REMIGR project, which gave rise to a published book in April 2016, co-coordinated by him: Regresso ao Futuro. A Nova Emigração e a Sociedade Portuguesa (Return to the Future. The Portuguese Society and it’s New Emigration). +
