Abstract

Information on the presence of Chinese and Ukrainian communities in Portugal, and namely in Greater Porto (northern Portugal) will be presented to then investigate how recent work on evolving networks might be a helpful tool in analysing the integration of migrant communities in urban systems, namely in helping to understand if the differential relationships between ‘nodes’ and ‘vertices’ might help to account for the higher and lesser visibility of these two communities within Greater Porto.
