PINTO DE ALMEIDA, Rosely Cubo. Leisure as a scope of integration of immigrants: representations and experiences of brazilian women the Basque Country. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.2, pp. 1-15. ISSN 2359-0769.

This study is an extract from the Doctoral Thesis 'European Mention' - 'Leisure as a Scope of Integration of Immigrants' in which we investigate the representations and experiences of leisure of Brazilian immigrant women living in a mixed or transnational marriage with men from the Basque Country. The scope of this research proves that leisure favors immigrants to promote feelings of freedom (source of valuable experiences, evolution of psychosocial roles and conquest of personal autonomy) and feelings of happiness (enjoyment, satisfaction and playful vision of reality); from the point of view of integration, the genesis of leisure is the center that modifies the 'sense of being' of immigrants, enabling them to develop knowledge, update skills and potentiate skills by articulating experiences to lived and to become. To do so, we created an empirical model of idle representation based on the approximation of migratory source-destination cultures; Thus, data were collected through questionnaires, in-depth interviews and group intervention dynamics 'Leisure Workshops', validating the recognition of the conceptions of sense of leisure identified with the experience (context of the immigrant Being) and identified as intercultural confluence /to belong).

Keywords : leisure; immigration; ethnic relations; sociocultural factors; psychodrama.
