Individual Medium Term Research Programme

Following an article (on the press) on the fertility patterns of Portuguese women compared to the Cape Verdeans living in Portugal based on the INE's Statistical Database, clues are opened to understand these behaviors in a culturalist perspective , on the one hand, and with a more comprehensive approach, on the other. It is intended, therefore, to conduct in-depth interviews with women, in Cape Verde, thus capturing social representations about the family and experiences / practices of motherhood. In this way, we try to identify cultural singularities that still resist the emigration process. This will require, in a second moment, to conduct interviews with Cape Verdeans residing in Portugal. The result will be a conference to be held at the selection center (probably at the Association of Older Students of the Cape Verdean Secondary School) and probably a communication at a congress in the social sciences.

The scientific capital accumulated by the Center, in the area of ​​Governance, Economy and Society, justifies this intention of work, since this focuses on a population with a strong presence in Portuguese society. On the other hand, the theoretical object is marked by demography, sociology of migration and ethnic relations, which is theoretically relevant. It should also be emphasized that there is no investigation in this field. The innovative character thus goes against the DINÂMIA'CET profile.
