The unit of CICS.NOVA at Leiria is based at the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria’s School of Education and Social Sciences. It has developed its activity since 2002, when the Research Center on Identiy(ies) and Diversity(ies) was created. It’s researchers became, in 2015, members of the CICS.NOVA.IPLeiria. Following its founding matrix, the unit at Leiria is committed to advancing research in a diverse set of areas of the social sciences, particularly on social trajectories, intercultural mediation, migration, heritage, tourism and identities. These are areas that are not conceived as rigid and/or autonomous from a disciplinary point of view, favoring rather the inter- and multidisciplinarity that characterizes the overall CICS.NOVA project and thus justifying the integration of its researchers in various work groups of this research center.
