CES/Almedina Collection showcases the scientific production currently developed at the Centre for Social Studies (CES).

It seeks to mirror the topicality and interdisciplinarity of the debates in the Social and Human Sciences, marking the research here conducted.

Disseminating the research work and contributing to an ongoing scientific research constitute its two main objectives - stemming from diverse historical, cultural, political and sociological perspectives which do not fear to embrace new emerging epistemological challenges, being an example of that the dialogues with the South and from the South.

The partnership leading to the Collection aims at boosting the advantages arising from a meeting point between the scientific production carried out at CES - as a research unit of internationally recognized excellence – and the prestige of Almedina Editions.

Started in 2009, the CES/Almedina Collection initially had 10 series, representing thematic and research lines (Cities and Architecture; Knowledge and Institutions; Cosmopolis; Democracy and Participation; Law and Society; Identities and Interculturalities; Literature and Art; Social Policies; Risk and Regulation; Labour and Society). Upon the Collection recasting, in 2019, a single collection was put in place, in the context of which the proposed works undergo a process of scientific refereeing which is subject to a double-blind peer review.
