Centre for African and Development Studies
The Centre for African and Development Studies (CESA) is a research centre in the ISEG – Lisbon School of Economics and Management at the Universidade de Lisboa. It is dedicated to the study of economic, social and cultural development in developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America, although it places particular emphasis on the study of Portuguese-speaking countries, China and Pacific Asia, as well as Brazil and other Mercosur countries. Additionally, CESA also promotes research on any other theoretical or applied topic in development studies, in other regions generally or across several regions. It promotes multidisciplinary approaches to the phenomenon of development at the intersection between the various theoretical and applied aspects of research, as well as being linked to national and international cooperation programs, and to the Master’s programs in Development and International Cooperation (MDCI) and PhD in Development Studies (PDED) of the Lisbon School of Economics and Management (ISEG) of the Universidade de Lisboa.
