Social Research Center


The Social Research Center (SRC) was established in 1953. Over the last five decades, the SRC has been committed to carrying out multidisciplinary research on a broad range of subjects, engaging in capacity building of students and researchers in Egypt and the region, and striving to reach its aims and goals. The mission of the SRC is to conduct and encourage multidisciplinary social science research in Egypt and the Arab region. This mission is fulfilled through the center’s two main activities, namely conducting research and building capacities. The center is engaged in a variety of research projects at both the national and regional levels, and has a distinct reputation for carrying out high-quality field studies and in-depth analytical research. It has also excelled in the area of building social research capacities for students, scholars and organizations engaged in social science research in the region. The center strives to inform policy formulation and implementation while contributing to knowledge in the social sciences. It aims to contribute to developing skills and building institutional capacity in the region, as well as to advancing public debate about important issues.
