ISRF

The Independent Social Research Foundation (ISRF) is a public benefit foundation funded by a group of private philanthropists with interests in academia and social science, founded in 2008. It is dedicated to advancing the social sciences through the promotion of new modes of inquiry and the development of interdisciplinary expertise and methods, and through better understanding of social entities and processes. The ISRF believes that interdisciplinary research - understood here as not just the simple combination of traditional approaches, but the conversation between established disciplines and the introduction of new modes of inquiry - is critical for the advancement of new knowledge and for solving contemporary theoretical and practical problems
