Portuguese emigrants’ integration process
Mariana Guerra*
After decades of invisibility, the Portuguese emigration went back to be the center of attention, due to the exponential growth in the number of departures, since the 2010 decade. Regarding this new emigratory reality, this study tries to find the determinants of the Portuguese emigrants’ integration process. To do so, a quantitative analysis was carried on, based on data from the REMIGR research project, which provided a look over the influence of each factor in integration process, with the factors being: age, gender, qualifications, social capital, years of residence and official language of the destination country.
