The second edition of the inter-university PhD programme on Gender Studies began in the academic year 2019/2020, resulting from a consortium between Institute of Political ans Social Sciences (ISCSP-ULisboa), NOVA School of Law and NOVA Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities.
This doctoral programme's mission is to contribute to the affirmation of Gender Studies as an autonomous scientific field of research and advanced education. Moreover, it prepares and trains researchers, other professionals, senior officials and other managers on analysing critically and reflectively themes related to gender, and then intervene in various sectors and social and political activities.
In order to mark the beginning of the second edition of the doctoral programme, the Opening Conference of the Phd on Gender Studies 2019/2020 was held on the 4th of Novembre at ISCSP-ULisboa. Professor Lígia Amâncio (Professora Catedrática at ISCTE-IUL and Coordinator of the european project SAGE - Systemic Action for Gender Equality) was a speaker at this conference.
On the 24th of October 2019, the seminar Public policy, atittudes and values. Perspectives and analysis stemmed from the ESS 8 data (Políticas públicas, atitudes e valores. Perspetivas e análises a partir dos dados do ESS 8) was held at ISCSP-ULisboa.
The European Social Survey (ESS) is an internatinal survey which collects transnational comparative information on attitudes and behaviours. This is particularly suitable for Poltical and Social Sciences and Portugal is a part of this survey since the beginning of it in 2022.
This session had the goal to enlighten the attendees on the multiple applications of the database. This database is one of the most useful for comparative European analyses and has free access. All of this allows richer analyses and researches, which will increase its potencial as a publicated research/work.
On the 18th of July 2019 the session for the presentation of the Gender Equality In Higher Education Institutions project was held at ISCSP-ULisboa. This project is funded by EEA Grants 2014-2014 and promoted by Direção-Geral do Ensino Superior (DGES). Its operating entity is the Comission for Citizenshio and Gender Equality (CIG). Its scientific officer is the Interdisciplinary Centre for Gender Studies (CIEG/ISCSP-Ulisboa). GE-HEI project - Gender Equality in Higher Education Institutions has a partnership with the Institute for Gender, Equality and Difference at the University of Iceland (RIKK) and with the Agência de Avaliação e Acreditação do Ensino Superior (A3ES).
In comparison with the the other OECD countries, Portugal has a high number of women with advanced education levels (bachelor, masters and doctorate degrees) and a relatively high number of women researchers in areas traditionally male-oriented, such as sciences, technologies and mathematics. However, this women's participation decreases greatly when we analyze management positions and higher academic positions in the Higher Education Institutions (Departments' Offices, Rectory and Vice-Rectories, Catedráticos/as, etc.). One of the goals of this project is to understand the factors that are able to explain the inequalities at the level of the Higher Education Institutions, to then better identify and fight them. To accomplish this goal, the project will analyse thoroughly these dynamics and elaborate a set of recommendations to the development of gender equality criteria in Higher Education Institutions.
On the 18th of January 2022, the Public Presentation of the BOOMERANG Project - Study on immigrant women's and men's perceptions of the impact of the unequal share of unpaid work was held.
This project is promoted by the Institute of Social and Political Sciences of the University of Lisbon (ISCSP-ULisboa) and is funded by EEA Grants. Its operational entity is the Comission for Citizenship and Gender Equality (CIG) and its scientific office is the Interdisciplinary Centre for Gender Studies (CIEG/ISCSP-ULisboa), and there is a partnership with University of Maia, Universidade Aberta, Associação Plano i, Cruz Vermelha Portuguesa – Delegação de Braga, SOS RACISMO and Odalnaeringshage.
On the 2nd and 4th of February 2022, the II Webinar of the GE-HEI project - Gender Equality in Higher Education Institutions was held.
During the event, the goals and some preliminary results of the project were disclosed. This helped to promote the dissemination of knowledge on the Gender Studies field, both in national and international contexts, regarding Gender Equality in Higher Education. It also helped to strenghten the networks between IES, Research Centres and reseacrhers who work on this field.

The project Women's Defense Dialogues was developed within the Portuguese participation on NATO’s project Women's Defense Dialogues. These dialogues were a NATO’s Secretary-General’s Representative Office initiative as part of the agenda “Women, Peace and Security”.

The project GIESTA – Women and Girls in the Interior and Rural areas – Promoting Equality between Women and Men highlights ‘giesta’ since it is a resistant species along mountains. That same resistance characterizes women in the interior of Portugal, particularly in rural areas. Devolped by Associação Fragas Aveloso – Associação para a Interação Ambiental, Científica, Comunitária e Cultural, the strategic goal of the project is to intervine among women and girls in the rural communities of the interior of the country, specifically in the municipality of Lafões, S. Pedro do Sul.
The project is funded by POISE and has Manuela Tavares as its coordinator.
