The Institute of Social Sciences and Humanities, Skopje (ISSHS) is a nonprofit research organization in applied social and humanities studies focusing mainly on multi-issue policy studies. It holds the status of a scientific institution in the social sciences and humanities accorded by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Macedonia. It is also an accredited graduate school offering M.A.-level programs in multi-issue policy studies, cultural studies, and gender studies. The Institute holds an Erasmus+ charter for Higher Education Institutions in Europe. Its core activities include multi-issue policy studies and policy-related advocacy and training, coupled with basic research in the social sciences and humanities. In addition to pursing policy research, we seek to make findings visible and put them into practice in ways that can contribute to positive changes in society; data-driven advocacy and awareness-raising are part of every policy research activity that we undertake. We also provide consultancy and act as multi-issue policy studies think tank. ISSHS is member of the European Humanities Consortium.
