100 Years of Social and Behavioral Science

Join us in celebrating 100 years of social and behavioral science aimed at improving human well-being, and in imagining how new investments in research will help us find solutions for the next 100 years.


A new $20 million partnership with the National Science Foundation will advance the scientific frontier of building Covid-19 vaccination demand and a healthier information environment.


The CSWEP-SSRC Women in Economics and Mathematics Research Consortium invites proposals to evaluate cost-effective and scalable interventions to increase the presence and success of women throughout the economics discipline.


Today, new tools and methods offer new opportunities for policy-relevant and socially useful social and behavioral science. The Council is uniquely positioned to unite the research, policy, and philanthropic communities in the search for interventions and policies that can better support human well-being on a global scale. As the Council enters a new century, this work is more important than ever.

At the 100th anniversary of the Council’s founding, we are proud to honor its founders and to celebrate the achievements of policy-relevant and solutions-oriented social and behavioral science. Every month we feature new articles from the most recent issues of each founding association’s flagship journal. Across disciplines, the frontiers of social and behavioral science are rapidly advancing, and with them, our collective capacity to support global well-being.
