*About the Oficina Global

The debate regarding development is now centered on sustainability, equality, social justice, and peace, as well as on growth and economic exploitation. The Oficina Global is an innovative initiative of CEsA/ISEG and the Masters in Development and International Cooperation (MDCI), which aims to promote debate regarding global development in Portuguese, and also to reinforce the role of the University community (students, faculty, and researchers) as a resource and a meeting-point between the private and public sector and society as a whole.
