Graca Brightwell - Participant

    GEB is a multi-disciplinary discussion group which aims at understanding the issues affecting the Brazilian community in the UK. It promotes discussions between representatives of the Brazilian community and researchers in order to allow for a better understanding of how members of this community experience immigration. Furthermore, it disseminates research on the Brazilian community in the UK through seminars, workshops, publications and online.

    As a secretary of GEB since its inception I have been directly involved (along with the other core members) in: - Creating its ethos and projecting a web presence; - Co-organising and applying for funds for our monthly and yearly seminars which have helped to consolidate and expand the network of scholars, researchers and other interested parties involved with Brazilian international migration. Among some of our guests we had Nando Sigona from Compas, University of Oxford. - Disseminating research on the Brazilian community in the UK. I highlight here the special issue on Brazilian migration in the UK for the Brazilian peer reviewed journal TRAVESSIA and a recent survey on Brazilians in London, available at: http://www.gold.ac.uk/media/Por%20uma%20vida%20melhor.pdf. - Participating in discussions with the Brazilian authorities in the UK and in Brazil through participation in: “RedeUK”, the network of Brazilians in the UK; “Rede de Brasileiros e Brasileiras na Europa”, the network of Brazilians in Europe; as well as in the conference “Brasileiros no Mundo”, the network of Brazilians in the world. - Developing a resource bank with publications about Brazilian international migration.
