Maria Ceci Misoczky is Associate Professor and researcher at Escola de Administração da Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) in Porto Alegre, Brazil.
Maria coordinates the subject area of Organization Studies of the Postgraduate Administration Program at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul. Her research interests include the organization of social struggles, focusing on socio-environmental conflicts and anti-colonial and anti-capitalist movements in Latin America. She also coordinates the Research Group Organization and Liberating Praxis and is the editor-inchief of REBELA – Revista Brasileira de Estudos Latino-Americanos (Brazilian Journal of Latin American Studies, http://rebela.edugraf.ufsc.br). She maintains extensive links to academics, activists and policy makers throughout Latin America, and, as part of the CDM Board, would work towards enlarging the reach of CMS throughout the continent. This should include a move to involve other languages (than English) in the CMS discourse. She has always been in close touch with the grassroots of politics, organizing and struggle. An expression of this has been her recent involvement in supporting Haiti to construct a national health system.
