A New Initiative in Ethiopia               A Center for Research and Policy Dialogue
Welcome to Forum for Social Studies (FSS)

The Forum for Social Studies (FSS) is a non-government, non-profit policy think tank registered as an ‘Ethiopian Residents Charity’ under Ethiopian law. It is dedicated to the cause of independent research and providing a forum for informed public debate of development issues and policy initiatives.
