Abstract (Summary)

The microregion of Alto Capibaribe, Pernambuco - Northeast of Brazil, since its genesis, has been constituted as a suitable place for migration. From this observation this doctoral thesis was developed, with a methodological foundation that is a hybrid method composed of historical materialism and qualitative research. For the theoretical background, the concepts of center-periphery and classification of types of migration were used based on literature review. The hypothesis pursued that Labor and Education are configured as the main reasons why an individual or a group move within a determined space was confirmed. For such verification, it was necessary to cross-check the official data from the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics with evidence collected in biographical interviews, coming to the conclusion that migration within the microregion is divided into two periods: 1 - before the mid-eighties of last century, characterized mainly by the permanent long distance emigration (specially for major metropolitan areas around the country) and the short duration emigration, characterized by half-pendular migration towards Zona da Mata in Pernambuco during drought periods. 2 - the second period that follows and comes up to the present day is characterized by the return migration stimulated by changes in the economy's productive base and by pendular and semi-pendular migration of commuting students who seek qualification to have more chances in the labor market . Thus, migration within the region has always been connected to the process of social reproduction, being stimulated mainly by work.
