A-Z LECTURES and CATEGORIES

'We are the national academy of academics, practitioners and learned societies in social science. The sector’s leading independent voice in the UK, we champion the vital role social sciences play in education, government and business ... Our work to "promote social science in the UK for public benefit" is guided by our strategy. We inform and advocate to enhance and safeguard social science; we showcase its importance and use; we facilitate knowledge exchange to policy on issues of national importance; we foster multi-disciplinary approaches and innovation.'

'Forthcoming events relevant to the College of Social Sciences and International Studies. Any SSIS staff or postgrads may always attend, although registration may be required (the event will specify if so). Anyone else should contact the department or the centre in question.'

'We are the UK's largest organisation for funding research on economic and social issues. We support independent, high quality research which has an impact on business, the public sector and civil society ... Social science research plays an important role in our society. Public engagement is about raising awareness of the social sciences and encouraging involvement in both social and science-related research, which will translate into real benefits for society and individuals.' Public-facing activities include the annual UK-wide Festival of Social Science.
