This Project intends to study the internal and international migration trajectories in the state of São Paulo and its implications in the past, the present and for the future of São Paulo social formation in the period that comprehends from the end of the 19th century until the first decade of the 21st century (1880-2010), forwarding for the subsequent years. This Migration Observatory in São Paulo will allow the capture of the migratory processes historically contextualized, its internal and international movements, throughout this period, in a way that expand the knowledge and the analysis about this social phenomenon. In an interdisciplinary perspective, it will allow researchers from different academic areas to dialogue directly with the migratory phenomenon, transforming this dialogue in interdisciplinary analysis about the phenomenon and its characteristics. From the institutional-academic perspective, this project intends to bring together researchers from different universities from São Paulo (UNICAMP, UFSCAR e UNESP/Marília) around the theme of migration. It searches the analysis of the fazes and faces of the migration in the State of São Paulo, centralizing its analysis and reflexions in different migratory fluxes, distinct population displacement modalities throughout the different moments that marked the social history of the State. In a historical perspective, the social and migratory phenomena will interact with each other and with other contextual, empirical and theoretical elements, giving the deserved importance for the internal and international migrations in the formation of São Paulo society and furthering the knowledge of the specific migratory processes and situations in São Paulo. In a contemporary perspective, concepts and theoretical approaches will be revisited, so that they became capable of explaining and incorporating the complex current situations of the internal and international migrations.
