Tatiana Moura


Feminist, mother, and auxiliary researcher at the Centre for Social Studies at the University of Coimbra (CES-UC), where I founded and co-coordinate the Observatory on Masculinities and several national and international projects on masculinities and gender violence prevention (KINDER, X-MEN, among others) with a relevant impact in the production of contributions to programs and public policies on gender equality and masculinities in Portugal and in the European context. Recently, Iwas invited to co-found the International Academic Network on Masculinities, Gender and Equality (https://observatoriomasculinidad.umh.es/red-internacional-masculinidades/), which gathers feminist researchers on masculinities from the Global South and North. I am a member of the Permanent Commission of the Scientific Committee of CES, and invited lecturer of the discipline "International Relations, Feminisms and Masculinities" at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Coimbra, September 2021. Since March 2018 I am one of the Associate Directors of UniPeriferias (Maré, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil). Between 2019 and 2021 I co-coordinated the Humanities, Migrations and Peace Studies Group (NHUMEP-CES), and between 2011 and 2019 I was the Executive Director of Instituto Promundo (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), a research applied NGO dedicated to engaging men and boys in gender equality. In the last twenty years, I fundraised and coordinated projects on masculinities, caregiving, violence and trajectories of non-violence in peripheral contexts, particularly in Latin America and Europe. Member of the MenEngage Global Alliance, co-founder and Member of the Steering Committee of the MenEngage Iberia Network since 2018, I am also a Senior Fellow at Equimundo: Centre for Masculinities and Social Justice (USA) since 2021. I holds a PhD in Peace, Conflicts and Democracy from the University Jaume I, Spain, a Master's degree in Sociology from the Faculty of Economics of the University of Coimbra and a Bachelor's degree in International Relations from the same Faculty. My research interests focus on issues related to feminism in International Relations, masculinities, urban violence and newest wars.
