Socioeconomic and Humanities Studies Council

The Institute of Socioeconomic Research was establishing in 1970 under the name "Socioeconomic Research Council". From the start the Institute proved its fore- front role in augmenting development efforts by carrying out specialized research in relevant themes. Its efforts have been planned to constitute a cornerstone in Sudanese development. The Institute became part of the National Centre for Research in 1991, and then affiliated to the Ministry of Science and Technology. In 2007 the Institute gained independence under the name "The Socioeconomic Commission" which now supervises the implementation of socioeconomic and human studies programs adopted by SAS.
