L'Angola, un Eldorado pour la jeunesse portugaise?

Abstract : Since the end of the civil war in Angola, in 2002, migrations from Portugal to its former colony have increased significantly. Who precisely are the Portuguese who decide to go and work in Angola and what are their motivations? What aspirations do they have and what engages their imagination to migrate? Which economic, social, and cultural ressources, as well as factors related to identity and memory, are involved in these trajectories? What meanings do they bestow on the places and spaces they travel to and through which they pass, and what meanings to they attribute to their own experience of mobility? This article examines the articulation between the notions of migrant subjectivities, family memories, and intergenerational bonds within the framework of European migrations to Africa that are historically associated to the colonial empires.
