OSSREA

The Organization for Social Science Research in Eastern and Southern Africa (OSSREA) is a regional membership-based and donor-supported research and capacity-building organization whose mission is to promote dialogue and interaction between researchers and policy-makers in Eastern and Southern Africa with a view to enhancing the impact of research on policy-making and development planning. Its headquarter is based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.


Membership is open to all individuals and institutions engaged in teaching and/or research. OSSREA not only engages in interdisciplinary research but also provides research grants to junior and senior scholars based in the region. It also offers training in Research Methodology. OSSREA operates major projects either independently or in collaboration with other institutions and produces a variety of scholarly publications ranging from its bi-annual journal to monographs, books and research reports.
