Social Science Baha
Social Science Baha is an independent, non-profit organization established in January 2002 with the objective of promoting and enhancing the study of and research in the social sciences in Nepal. The first activity undertaken by Social Science Baha (SSB) was to set up a social science library, the only one of its kind in the country so far. SSB soon diversified its activities to pursue other means of helping the growth of the social sciences such as running the four-month-long Immersion Course on Contemporary Social Issues. By the time of its formal registration in January 2007, SSB’s activities included lectures, discussions, workshops, and conferences as well as publishing books and other research papers. Soon afterward, SSB also began undertaking research, both as a collaborating partner with academic/research institutions and on contract.
