Social Sciences Lab is a non-commercial project which promotes education and research in social sciences in Russia. Focused on applied methods, SSL designs solutions for social challenges.

 

The project is split into three streams:

— project schools, where we learn from Russian and international experts and design human-centered projects;

— media project, where we examine social issues through stories and create narratives;

— research track, where we inquire, analyse and share.
