Financial Outsiders: The Political Economy of Marginal and Alternative Financial Trajectories
SOCIUS/CSG is the proponent institution of the new project approved by the FCT, "Financial Outsiders: The Political Economy of Marginal and Alternative Financial Trajectories", coordinated by the SOCIUS researcher, Daniel Seabra Lopes. ISCTE/ Centro de Estudos sobre a Mudança Socioeconómica e o Território is the participant institution of this project.
The project intends to study the relationships that subjects outside or on the margins of the mainstream financial and banking system maintain with money and finance. Given the social pervasiveness of this system, such margins are not easy to find. The cases to be explored are intentionally diverse, including recently arrived refugees, homeless people, incarcerated people and unbanked persons who have voluntarily exited (or tried to exit) the financial system.
This project starts in December 2022, and is expected to last 18 months.

TAXINEQ - Inequality, individual behaviour, and policy reforms
SOCIUS/CSG is the participating institution in the new project approved by the FCT, TAXINEQ - “Inequality, individual behaviour, and policy reforms: evidence from linked income, wealth and consumption administrative tax records”. Coordinated by the researcher Susana Peralta (Univ. Nova), and coordinated by SOCIUS researcher, Amilcar Moreira, this project has the Faculty of Economics of Universidade Nova de Lisboa as proponent institution, and involves institutions from Belgium, France, Spain and Portugal.
The most important contribution of TAXINEQ, exploits these features of the data to provide the first high-frequency, robust, and unbiased study of the link between income and consumption. TAXINEQ takes advantage of rich and hitherto unexploited administrative tax data from Portugal. The path breaking nature of TAXINEQ is grounded on the following facts: (i) income, wealth, and consumption tax records have unique individual identifiers that allow us to merge the datasets; (ii) Consumption data is collected through a system of electronic invoicing through which consumption is reported to the Portuguese Tax Authority by retailers, thus avoiding the usual misreporting caveat that is common to self-reported retrospective survey data; (iii) consumption data is collected at a monthly frequency.
This project starts in january 2023, and is expected to last 36 months.


The international project Agorarisk is headquartered at ISEG at the University of Lisbon and involves several disciplinary areas with the aim of providing the crossing of knowledge and knowledge on topics such as water, soils, contamination and environmental and social transformations in Estarreja. It intends to understand the conditions of possibility of dialogue and joint work between different worlds and knowledge, in order to experiment and co-produce effective tools to reduce the gap between technical-scientific knowledge and knowledge of citizens.
In Portugal, the ULisboa team includes the researcher Sofia Bento (SOCIUS), among other researchers from Instituto Superior Técnico and Universidade de Coimbra. The international partner is the French institute INRAE (National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment).
