Cédric Masse is finishing a doctoral dissertation in sociology at the Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Lisbon. His main current research focuses on social movements related to alter-globalisation in the context of Portugal. More precisely, through these movements, he deals with the questions of mobilisations, praxes and identities, and more largely, with the problematic of the genesis and formation of social movements.Among his writings on the civil society organisations and social movements, he published a book in 2007 entitled Les Organisations non Gouvernementales face aux Gouvernants. Les rapports majeurs des ONG avec l’ONU, la Banque Mondiale et la Commission Européenne (Paris, Editions Le Manuscrit).
Research interests: social movements, civil society, (alter-)globalisation, social action, identity.
