"Founded in 1958 and administered by the Municipal Government of Shanghai, SASS is China’s oldest institution for the humanities and social sciences and is the largest one outside the capital of Beijing. SASS is a leading think tank and a distinguished academic institution in China. Although SASS receives most of its funds from the municipal government of Shanghai, it also draws financial support from various non-governmental sources at home and abroad.

SASS has 17 institutes and more than 20 interdisciplinary centers that conduct theoretical research and applied studies in humanities and social sciences, with a special focus on important issues arising from the current social and economic transformation and the country’s continual reform and development."
