Law & Social Sciences Program

by:

The National Science Foundation, more commonly known as NSF, is a United States government agency that primarily supports fundamental research and education in all the non-medical related fields of science and engineering.

The efforts of the National Science Foundation are geared towards realizing their mission, which is to "To promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; and to secure the national defense."

In line with this mission, the NSF has constituted the Law & Social Sciences Program wherein it aims to solicit proposals that will address social scientific studies of law and law-like systems of rules.

The Law & Social Sciences Program will be naturally interdisciplinary and multi-methodological. The guidelines of the program necessitates that in order for a proposal to be successful, it should first contain research ideas that will advance scientific theory and the perception of the linkages between the human behavior and laws or legal processes.

To do this, the proposal will need a dynamic approach which will simultaneously accommodate multiple fields of studies, such as:

1. Crime, Violence and Punishment

2. Economic Issues

3. Governance

4. Legal Decision-making

5. Legal Mobilization and Conceptions of Justice

6. Litigation and the Legal Profession
