The SSRC nurtures new generations of social scientists, fosters innovative research, and mobilizes necessary knowledge on important public issues.

Main Objectives:

The SSRC’s agenda, in terms of topics and activities, is not static, and we engage new areas of work when social science, in alliance with other fields, has an important contribution to make to understanding and problem solving. In recent years, we have focused on conflict and peacebuilding, the public sphere, knowledge and learning, and strengthening global social science. Current areas also include deepening the understanding of religion and analyzing the United States from a human development perspective. Major new initiatives are under development on the anxieties of democracy, cities, digital culture, and exploring “scholarly borderlands,” which will bring social scientists in closer collaboration with both natural scientists and humanists.
