About SSEESS and the ISSC membership
The ISSC aims to strengthen the social sciences to help solve global problems. This also includes topics related to adaptation to environmental and climate change. Due to the importance of interdisciplinary GEC research and ISSC’s active involvement in this, SSEESS is an associate member of the ISSC. The aim of membership to the ISSC is to create a truly comprehensive representation for all disciplines and fields within the social sciences, and present a unified voice for the social sciences in tackling problems on the global stage.
Among other things, this membership gives SSEESS the opportunity:
- to have access to ISSC’s global networks of member organisations, researchers and partners
- to participate in ISSC’s flagship activities, including the World Social Science Report and the World Social Science Forum
- to have privileged involvement in shaping new global social-science initiatives and discussions on the future of the social sciences
- to shape the outcomes of global scoping and visioning exercises.
