Brief description of institution (250 words max)

Created in January 2002, CEMME is an interdisciplinary research unit located in the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences of the New University of Lisbon, where it has been carrying out quantitative and qualitative research projects on migrations; identity processes and strategies and inter-ethnic relations.

During the period of settlement (2000 -2003), the research centre main concern was to consolidate its organisational structure and international network of collaborations, to develop its own research team, and to stimulate and supervise students´ research projects, as well as to find new and alternative ways of funding.

The Centre was internationally evaluated as "very good" in August 2003, and since then has been receiving funding from the Foundation for Science and Technology.


CEMME is divided into five main research areas:


I - Studies on Transnational Populations

Coord.: Susana Pereira Bastos

II - African Studies

Coord.: José Gabriel Pereira Bastos

III - Gypsy Studies

Coord.: José Gabriel Pereira Bastos

IV - Brazilian Studies

Coords.: Donizete Rodrigues and José Gabriel Pereira Bastos

V - Studies on Consuming and Identities

Coord.: Filomena Paiva Silvano
