Arab Council for the Social Sciences joins ISSC



The ISSC is pleased to announce the Arab Council for the Social Sciences (ACSS) as a Member Organisation.

The Arab Council for the Social Sciences is a regional, independent, non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening social science research and knowledge production in the Arab world. By supporting researchers and academic/research institutions, the ACSS aims to contribute to the creation, dissemination, validation and utilization of social science research and to enrich public debate about the challenges facing Arab societies. The ACSS also aims to enhance the role of social science in Arab public life and inform public policy in the region.

The Arab Council’s membership is to be formally agreed after endorsement from the ISSC’s General Assembly which meets this year in Montreal.

The Arab Council for Social Sciences joining the International Social Science Council signifies the growing importance of the social sciences in the region, and strengthens the global reach of the social sciences.
