Section on European Studies

Over the last decades the European Studies have grown into an established field of study across Europe and beyond. In Portugal there is already a significant body of scholars whose main areas of research are embedded in the European Studies area, with particular emphasis on the study of the European Union both as a political system and a global actor. Prompted by the growing dynamism of this research domain, a Section of European Studies (SES) was created in 2016 within the Portuguese Political Science Association. SES aims to be a platform for networking open to all that work or have a particular interest in the European Studies’ field. Among SES’s main goals we can highlight the following:

  • To showcase the work of experts in European Studies working in Portugal

  • To foster collective projects leading to outputs with high scientific impact

  • To strengthen the field of European Studies in Portugal
