Funded by the FCT and developed at ICS-ULisboa, the project aimed to study several women's associations that played a significant role at the political and social level from the outset of World War I until April 25, 1974.

The duration of the period under study (1914-1974), over half a century, allowed us to analyze the changes that occurred in the structures and dynamics of these associations, from different political contexts: monarchical, republican, support for the dictatorship, and clandestine, legal or semi-legal opposition to the authoritarian regime of the Estado Novo. The study of these associations seeked to contribute to the development of political history from a gender perspective. In addition, a combination of historical and sociological approaches, associated with network analysis, provided new insights into women's associations, with an emphasis on the links that might exist between the associations under study.

Manuela Tavares was a member of the project’s team.

This project was funded by Fundação Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT) in the scope of Apoio Especial Research 4 Covid-19 – FCT.

The study had the goal of depicting the pandemic’s impacts on the social determinants of gender violence in Porto’s most vulnerable parishes. In order for this to be accomplished, a sample of women who were previously involved in gender violence incidents (especially domestic violence) and lived in the parishes mentioned above was analysed.

It was promoted by Instituto de Saúde Pública da Universidade do Porto (ISPUP) and had Joana Topa as a researcher and one of the Head Researchers.

This project was funded by the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) and coordinated by Maria José Magalhães. Its main institution was União Mulheres Alternativa e Resposta (UMAR) and had University of Erlangen-Nürnberg’s Institute for Empirical Sociological Research, Fundação para os Direitos das Mulheres and CIEG as its partners.

The project’s overall objective was to improve the institutional response by identifying the gaps within and between law and practice when providing justice to victims of femicide. Specifically, Improve legal responses to counter femicide aimed:
To improve investigation and prosecution in cases of femicide
To strengthen the role and rights of victims in criminal proceedings and ensure their access to reparation
To examine the impact of COVID-19 on institutional responses to femicide

Funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, the DARE project aims to train the new generation of researchers in the field of disability rights, by embedding them in the top universities in this field, with exposure to key civil society organisations working at the grassroots level to secure the rights of persons with disabilities. 

The lead partner in this project is the National University of Ireland Galway. At ISCSP-ULisbon, Paula Campos Pinto coordinates on behalf of the Disability and Human Rights Observatory (ODDH).

The V International Congress Architecture and Gender | ACTION. Feminisms and the spatialization of resistances is the continuity of reflections organized since 2015 and mainly from southern Europe, enabling the construction of networks, research and transcontinental experiences. In this genealogy, with varied programs and themes, the previous congresses were ArquitectAs (2014, Seville), Matrices (2015, Lisbon), MORE(2017, Florence), and Fielding Architecture (2019, Brighton). The fifth edition emphasizes the political component of space and rights intersection, never forgetting the diversity of being a woman or a girl and the crossing with the current circumstances derived from the COVID-19 pandemic.

It will be held on april 21, 22 and 23, exclusively online.
