Paulo Miguel Madeira has a PhD in Geography from the University of Lisbon, where he also obtained a MSc and a degree in Geography. He is a post-doctoral researcher at the Institute of Social Sciences (ICS) of the University of Lisbon, where since 2021 he is a member of the team of the project ODSlocal – Municipal Platform for Sustainable Development Goals.

He has conducted research on regional development and policies, from a perspective that combines the political economy of globalisation and regional policies. In his PhD thesis, supported by an individual grant from FCT, he analysed the main impacts of the international financial and economic crisis that began in 2008 on the evolution of the regions of the European Union and Brazil, as well as the role, in this evolution, of regional policies and other policies with territorial impacts.

He has also done research in the field of migration and, since 2019, at ICS, he also works on environmental and sustainability issues. Paulo was a journalist at Público newspaper for over 20 years, namely in the areas of economy and media.
