Social Science Research Council SSRC

Linked with Alex de Waal – England, and with Sudan and the International Criminal Court ICC.

The SSRC builds interdisciplinary intellectual networks to address global changes. We bring varied perspectives to bear on crucial issues and mobilize inclusive and informed publics based in multiple geographical locations. In this way, these activities promote international collaboration. International collaboration operates as a “strategic emphasis” that crosscuts, and integrates with, Council-wide programmatic areas, projects and activities, while also moving the Council’s regional programs into a new generation of research and scholarship. This is achieved through:

  • organizing collaborative research on regional, cross-regional and global issues;
  • facilitating and evaluating cooperation amongst institutions, centers and social science donors to enable international collaboration;
  • developing training and exchange activities that promote research collaboration.

About the SSRC: The Social Science Research Council is an independent, not-for-profit research organization founded in 1923. Based in New York City, it mobilizes researchers, policy makers, professionals, activists, and other experts from the private and public sectors to develop innovative approaches to issues of critical social importance.

The SSRC is committed to the idea that social science can produce necessary knowledge—necessary for citizens to understand their societies and necessary for policy makers to decide on crucial questions.

This mandate is carried out through workshops and conferences, research consortia, scholarly exchanges, summer training institutes, fellowships and grants, and publications. Over the past two decades, the SSRC has launched over thirty projects on a wide range of topics related to globalization, political and economic development, health, international security, human migration, and information technology. Its initiatives have played a leading role in educating and training new generations of social researchers, providing over 10,000 fellowships to graduate students and young researchers around the world. Its networks and committees have pioneered new approaches to understanding society and processes of social, cultural, economic, and political change … (full text).
