Instituto Universitário de Lisboa

Cis-IUL research engages in (a) the empirically-based development of theories and models and (b) the application of such theories to the analysis and solution of social, political and economic problems of Portuguese and European societies. Cis-IUL reaches out to society at three main levels: policymakers, community, and the entrepreneurial world. The topics researched by the research group members "Community, Education and Development” (CED) in this proposal include:

  • children and adolescent development
  • family context, attachment, parenting styles
  • school context, peer interaction, bullying
  • community development, empowerment, psychological sense of community
