Title: Militant Trajectories: From Brazil To Mozambique Through International Left-wing Networks [trajetórias Militantes: Do Brasil A Moçambique Nas Redes Da Esquerda Internacional]
Author: Azevedo D.L.
Abstract: This paper retraces the main social networks that led Brazilian exiles from the civilian-military dictatorship (1964-1985) to became "cooperants" - development volunteers - in the People's Republic of Mozambique after 1975. Based on interviews with some of those exiles, I intend to understand the underlying principles of the relationships established by the social agents involved in this migration process. Their narratives assign major relevance to the historical context of Cold War political polarization, as the "international left wing" was a symbolic and social relations' field to which the respondents claim to have belonged. I argue that this understanding, structured upon the idea of militancy, generates among the exiles a common view of the past and of their own trajectories.
