The Institute of Social Sciences forms part of the Faculty of Social Sciences. The beginnings of the institute are linked to the Institute of Sociology and Philosophy, which was established in 1958 at the University of Ljubljana. In 1991 the Institute of Social Sciences was founded, and today it comprises 19 research centres, which initiate and conduct basic applied and developmental research projects in the social sciences. Together they effectively execute some 80 research projects annually, which are funded partly by the state and partly through contracts with like-minded organisations or institutions.
