The PhD in Political Theory, International Relations and Human Rights, created in partnership by the Universities of Évora and the Azores, is distinguished by the centrality it gives to questions of citizenship and human rights, contextualized in the international system, driven by heterogeneous trends and forces that are sometimes contradictory. With the support of a faculty with high scientific and disciplinary competence and anchored in the solid research experience inserted in Research Centers of Excellence, this doctorate aims to develop a deep theoretical knowledge, which in a versatile and transdisciplinary way, boosts the development of critical analyzes , which represent an innovative and consistent contribution to research at national and international level.
