Pedro Dutra Salgado

Lecturer in International Relations, University of Portsmouth

I am a scholar dedicated to critical studies in International Relations, Global Political Economy, and Historical Sociology. My teaching and research explore many interdisciplinary dialogues between these three areas, with an empirical emphasis on Latin American, and specifically Brazilian, experiences of colonisation, state-formation and development.

I have degrees in Social Sciences (UERJ) and Law (UFRJ), an MA in International Relations at Sussex University, and a PhD in International Relations titled "The Peculiarity of Brazilian State-Formation in a Geopolitical Context: The Challenge of Eurocentrism in International Relations and Political Marxism". My doctoral research was funded by CNPq, a funding agency under Brazil's Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.

Outside of academia, I have worked with legal and political consultants of trade unions in the oil sector in Brazil.
