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.

Its work is guided by the conviction that enhancing the public-decision makers interface on key social and economic issues can foster a democratic tradition of public debates as well as promote a transparent, participatory and all-inclusive policy making and implementation space.
