The integration process of female refugees in Sao Paulo: the role of non-governmental organizations.
AuthorBariani Pastorelli, Marcella
International migrations are movements of people leaving and arriving between countries and they can be classified as voluntary or forced. Recent international conflicts have triggered a new forced migration wave, resulting in the largest number of refugees since World War II, leaving millions of displaced people. Brazil has become an alternative to asylum seekers quickly. Despite the facilitation of issuing visas, the country was not prepared for the high demand of people. Problems with bureaucracy upon arrival (diploma revalidation, employment, housing) have proven the state's inefficiency in welcoming and integrating refugees, opening a gap for NGOs to try to suppress these needs. This paper discusses the phenomenon of social integration of refugees from a gender perspective, in an attempt to understand the difficulties that a refugee woman may face when inserting herself in a different country / culture and how the projects offered by NGOs can be the key to the process. success in this process. Keywords: international migrations; refugee women; Brazil; NGOs
