The PhD Development Studies was established by the Technical University of Lisbon in 2009. This 3rd cycle course aims to provide high quality academic training in development studies and produce original research in this field. The course has emerged in response to the changes in recent decades that have brought Development Studies to the fore in current debates, both in the academies and in the area of economic, social and environmental policy.
Where is the course taught?
In Lisbon, at the School of Economics and Management (ISEG), one of the seven autonomous institutes making up the Technical University of Lisbon.
