Research at the Faculty of Social Sciences
On the strength of Canada's two major intellectual traditions, anglophone and francophone, the Faculty of Social Sciences stands as a centre of excellence in knowledge creation, research and training. Driven by both disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives, research at the Faculty is at once rich, innovative and varied, contributing to the depth and breadth of discussions on current issues here and elsewhere. And whether fundamental, theoretical, applied or action-oriented, this research stems from proven expertise and greatly influences individual communities and society in general. In step with contemporary society on both the national and international fronts, the Faculty fosters social innovation, creates and shares knowledge, promotes public policy development and builds research partnerships with the public and private sectors, as well as community organizations.
The Office of International Research’s mandate is to enhance the global reach of the University of Ottawa's research strengths. We work closely with researchers and their colleagues abroad, senior administrators, institutional partners, and funding agencies in Canada and overseas.
