José Pedro Monteiro received his PhD in history from the Institute of Social Sciences at the University of Lisbon in 2017 with a thesis on the internationalisation of the colonial labour issue in the post-World War II period. Over the years, his research interests have focused on the fields of international and transnational history and imperial and colonial history. He has published several articles and book chapters, nationally and internationally, on related themes and processes. He is currently developing a research project that crosses these disciplinary domains around the issues of citizenship and the rights regime in late Portuguese colonialism. He has been a researcher at the Communication and Society Research Centre since 2021.
