Centre for International Studies
The Centre for International Studies has as its core mission developing academic research, thinking and intervention in a range of complex social, political and economic phenomena that go beyond national and regional borders. CEI-IUL is committed to producing research of excellence addressing the most critical 21st Century international developments and societal challenges, as well as the consequences of globalisation. CEI-IUL develops its research agenda and activities in close articulation with different graduate programs at ISCTE-IUL, combining interdisciplinary research with a broad public-oriented activity, promoting research dissemination and public awareness of science and engaging in public debates. Committed to a policy of open access for its research outputs, CEI-IUL is already a member of some of the leading international research networks on International Studies and articulates many of its activities with civil society and public institutions.
CEI-IUL is organized on a matrix design of four regional lines – Africa, Asia & MENA, Latin America & Caribbean and Europe & Transatlantic Relations – crossed by three research groups – Institutions, Governance and International Relations, Societal and Development Challenges and Economy and Globalization.
This matrix combines researchers’ expertise on regional contexts with comparative research approaches of global relevance and theoretical approaches arising from political science, international relations, sociology, history, security studies, anthropology, and economics.
