Social Scientists Association

Colombo, Sri Lanka

The Social Scientists' Association (SSA) is an organization working to investigate the way in which social change is contouring the multiple realities faced by communities in Sri Lanka and South Asia. The SSA is deeply committed to promoting a culture of knowledge production that informs and undergirds interventions aimed at achieving social emancipation for marginalized communities. The main objectives behind the formation of the SSA were the pursuit of research, the publication and wide dissemination of original research, the development and organization of a library and documentation centre and the creation of a forum for debate and discussion. Its founders also hoped that the SSA would be able to participate in and contribute to programmes that further development and social change.
