Immigration in Brazil: The Insertion of Different Groups

(p.409) 27 Brazil
Immigration Worldwide

Zeila de Brito Fabri Demartini

Oxford University Press

The paper deals with the phenomenon of immigration in Brazil, in the 19th and 20th centuries, explaining the factors that had favored that as well as the positioning of the Brazilian state with regard to the entry of immigrants with different origins. It focuses on the insertion and experiences from the main groups of immigrants in the state of São Paulo: the Germans, the Italians, the Japanese, and the Portuguese. São Paulo was the Brazilian region that received the greater contingent of immigrants in this period because of its economic development. Also, it traces in general terms the current politics of the Brazilian government with regard to immigrants and the programs that can meet their needs. Although a poor country, Brazil has been attracting immigrants for well over a century and is able to contribute to international discussions about the conditions of immigrants worldwide.

Keywords:   immigration, Brazil, 19th and 20th centuries, Germans, Italians, Japanese, Portuguese, governmental policies, assistance programs
