Research Activities

The Institute of Social Sciences Chuo University engages in research activities by forming joint research teams, and research findings are reported in publication materials and various symposiums. Workshops and lectures are also open to guests who are not members of the Institute. (Please go to EVENT for more information). We also welcome researchers from overseas and actively promote international research exchange. Every year, about 10 projects are selected for implementation. Please see the list below for currently-running projects.
If you are interested in international research exchange related matters, such as acceptance of international researchers or joint research opportunities, please contact
