Scientific Programmes and Networks

The ISSC has initiated and supported several international research programmes with the objective of fostering comparative, inter-disciplinary research by setting up networks of social scientists from different disciplines and regions of the world.

The ISSC co-sponsors a number of international research programmes and networks around various themes – such as the environment, disaster risk, poverty and gender. These initiatives are undertaken in partnership with various partners and other organisations around the world. The responsibilities for the global social science community bring with it the need for integrated science.
