The Development Studies Program of the Lisbon School of Economics & Management (ISEG) seeks to deepen the knowledge of Development Studies from a multidisciplinary perspective, transmitted through its Master in Development and International Cooperation (MDCI) and the PhD Program in Development Studies (PDED).
These postgraduate study programs organize participation in lecture modules, seminars and workshops with invited national and international researchers, as well as promoting academic partnership with other universities and research centers of Universidade de Lisboa.
