Networks and Partnerships
EADI is the main professional network for Development and regional studies in Europe, which brings together a wide range of research centres on Development and International Cooperation, think tanks, national bodies and researchers from all over Europe. The network’s main objective is to facilitate dialogue between the various actors involved in this research area, identify needs and share ideas and information. CEsA is a member of this network.
CEsA is the Portuguese institution that is part of the Kapuscinski Lectures network of universities – an initiative of the United Nations Development Program and the European Commission. Since 2009, 40 conferences have been organized with renowned researchers in the field of Development at several European universities, including ISEG in March 2012.
CEsA signed a partnership with OMR with the aim of strengthening institutional ties with Mozambique for the purpose of research on the rural world.
CEsA is a partner of ACEP in several initiatives, namely the edition of Mundo Crítico – Journal of Development and Cooperation and Journalism Fellowships for Development, among others, such as projects and conferences.
CESA established a memorandum of understanding with KIEP to outline the cooperation scheme between the two institutions. Cooperation under this memorandum may include the following activities: (a) joint investigation; (b) exchange of information; (c) exchange of Human Resources and (d) collaboration in academic activities.
