Editorial

‘CES Doctoral School’ is currently a reality. After a decade and a half, CES hosts eleven doctoral programs offered by the University of Coimbra (UC). These PhD Programs are unique in the Portuguese context: all are thematic and these themes derive from cutting-edge research conducted at CES. Consequently, each program is grounded in consolidated research teams, which provides a structural dialectic link between research and advanced training. In this context, PhD Professors are actual researchers who also communicate their knowledge, expertise and findings through PhD Seminars.

Students enrolled in CES-UC PhD Programs become part of a highly internationalized, dynamic and demanding research environment, within which they have the opportunity to develop their own research interests. Every student receives individual attention, training and guidance from experienced lecturers, also benefiting from the availability of the wider CES research community. Once hosted by CES and the UC, doctoral students have access to academic, scientific and logistic support from both institutions.

Socially and culturally diverse, CES also benefits from its stand as a multidisciplinary space within the social sciences and humanities, where students can attend a multitude of seminars, conferences, intensive courses and open-lectures on diverse topics in different areas of knowledge. Additionally, CES is a reference for its research-action methodology, within which practitioners and decision-makers participate in the production of knowledge. These dynamics are further enriched by the significant number of foreign doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers that visit CES every year, bringing innovative teaching dynamics and sharing new research topics.

CES-UC PhD Programs are at the forefront of the most pressing current social problems, such as urban development; democratic challenges; peace and violent dynamics; human rights; justice and citizenship; labour relations and social inequalities; risk studies; and governance, innovation and knowledge; mainly focusing on discourse analysis, postcolonial studies, feminist studies, and heritages of Portuguese influence. PhD Programs are organized in a flexible format, offering a shared environment for deeper scientific reflection, while being open to proposals that are in line with the students’ objectives, based on their own research profile and interests. At CES, students have the opportunity to obtain cross-cutting scientific skills through hands-on-training in research, internationalization, publishing, organization of scientific events, outreach, impact and fundraising. Moreover, they have first-hand access to CES researchers and research and to participate in CES scientific networks.

CES-UC doctorates are currently spread all over the world, working in academia; decision-making positions, both in the public and the private sectors; and in civil society organizations. They are opinion makers in their areas of expertise shaping more just and inclusive societies. CES focuses on North|South relations, promoting a more horizontal and collaborative partnership, rendering visible unjust structural social, political and economic dynamics, and contributing through education and training to making this world a better place. This results in a powerful dynamic of research, as well as socially relevant and policy-oriented results, sustained by a dedicated and committed community of researchers. Come and be a part of this process!
