The Social Research Association was founded in the UK in 1978 to advance the conduct, development and application of social research.

The Association’s principal aims are:

  • to provide a forum for discussion and communication about social research activity in all areas of employment

  • to encourage the development of social research methodology, standards of work and codes of practice

  • to review and monitor the organisation and funding of social research

  • to promote the development of training and career structures for social researchers

  • to encourage the use of social research for formulating and monitoring social policy.
