The Chair of Ibero-American Studies is the result of a partnership between the Organization of Ibero-American States for Education, Science and Culture (OEI) and the Autonomous University of Lisbon (UAL), with the general objective of developing and promoting areas of knowledge, namely through the promotion of research, development and advanced training activities on topics of mutual interest.

The Chair is innovative because of its interdisciplinarity and the content it intends to create, dealing with subjects from History, Sociology, Political Science, International Relations, International Law, Economics and Literature, always from the perspective of the dynamics in the Ibero-American space and the interactions between the various Ibero-American countries and other countries and areas of the globe, such as the USA, China, India, and the African continent.

The Chair – attached to the Department of International Relations/OBSERVARE at UAL – reinforces Ibero-American Studies at this university, which has a long tradition in the field of Regional Studies.
