Brazilian immigration in France after 1980 was analyzed here with regard to the heterogeneity of the modalities that make this flow, whose dynamics reveal the concomitant presence of "old" and "new" migratory logics. Old because there is a persistent flow of brazilian students that turns itself to French learning institutions, thanks to the existence of historical links between Brazil and France within that circle. However, as a part of contemporary international migrations, there are also new migratory modalities in the recent flow of Brazilians to France, displacements that go hand in hand with the social transformations resulting from the intensification of the so-called globalization and from all dynamics associated to the diminishing distances and growing human mobility in that backdrop. As it is stated in the thesis, the use of migratory modalities in the analysis has allowed the rebuilding of the social processes that bring those flows, contemplating, at the same time, the incorporation of different interests and strategies of the migrants, as well as the corresponding repercussions in the ways of installation in destination societies. If the levels of autonomy and coercion that the agents experience aren't identical in the different profiles of migrants, consequently, the practices and the mechanisms involved in the planning and execution of the migration include these features (AU)
