The migratory movement called dekasegui passed through several situations since it's begun in the 90s. Currently, there is the presence of entire families in Japan, with children who migrated at an early age or were born in Japan. That aspect points to a new demand in the migratory movement, that is, the issue of children of dekasegui's. Many of them return to Brazil to join a university and they have desires, plans and objectives, whether they are professionals and/or lifestyle. Therefore, this research aims to investigate the context of the lives of these young people to understand the process of choosing them and the reason for their choices. This is a qualitative research, with the use of semi-structured interviews with young returnees enrolled in state public university in the state of São Paulo, which will be recorded and then transcribed. Through these interviews, we aim to understand the aspects that make your choices and life expectations. The data will be analyzed according to analysis of discourse, to take into account the peculiarities and regularities of the interviews. The discussion and interpretation of these data will be made based on psychoanalytic theory. (AU)
