The number of Chinese migrants settling in Portugal has been growing since the 1980s, and more rapidly since the turn of the century. However, studies focusing on these immigrants are still scarce and do not consider their diversity, including their different origins — essentially Macao, Mozambique, and China itself. The aim of this paper is to update the existing literature on Chinese migration to Portugal, particularly by looking at the immigrants’ diversity as a group (Macanese, Chinese Mozambicans, economic migrants, students, and business migrants). Additionally, data from the 2011 Census is analyzed for Chinese economic migrants in terms of the light it can shed on some dimensions related not only to their migratory paths, family contexts and labor market but particularly to their professional and economic strategies.

上个世纪八十年代以来,葡萄牙的华人人口不断增长,新千年初期尤其迅速。然而,学术界有关华人社会的研究仍然缺乏,并且未顾及华人社会的多元性。其实,生活在葡萄牙的华人源自澳门、莫桑比克和中国大陆。本文主要通过探视华人社会作为一个族裔群体所体现的多元性,更新有关旅葡华人的现有文献。通过分析2011年人口普查的有关数据,本文将对葡萄牙华人的移民途径、家庭背景和劳动市场,尤其是就业策略和经济策略,作出探讨。
