The World Social Science Report 2016 was financed by generous contributions from:

● the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida)

● UNESCO, as part of its framework agreement with the ISSC

● the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC)

Other generous contributors include European Science Foundation (ESF), Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), Research Council of Norway, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond and the Swedish Research Council.

The ISSC is very grateful for this support, without which the report would have not been possible. The ISSC also wishes to acknowledge Sida’s invaluable contribution to the Report through the World Social Science Fellows programme.
