Lidando com as fronteiras internas do Reino Unido: uma etnografia de brasileiros e suas residências temporárias em Londres.

Gustavo Dias

Resumo


Este artigo explora como os migrantes sem documentos enfrentaram dificuldades e lidaram com as fronteiras internas do Reino Unido enquanto moravam em Londres. Com base em descobertas empíricas coletadas em Londres e Minas Gerais, mostra como os brasileiros se adaptam taticamente em residências temporárias para escapar das duras políticas de imigração britânica e das incursões do Ministério do Interior em Londres. Este estudo utiliza particularmente os conceitos de fronteiras internas, deportação e cidadania discutidos pelos estudos contemporâneos sobre fronteiras. Morando em uma cidade multicultural onde o controle de identidade é uma prática social que permeia diversas atividades diárias, os brasileiros precisam negociar constantemente sua existência através das fronteiras internas de Londres sem serem denunciados por falta de visto.
