Dr. Maria Raquel Freire and Dr. Sofia José Santos, Professors of International Relations (IR) at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Coimbra and Researchers at the Center for Social Studies (CES) in Portugal, have coordinated the CES Summer School on Technology, Big Data and International Relations, held between the 28th of June and the 2nd of July, 2021.
