The SSH Council of the Netherlands represents the Dutch domain of Social Sciences & Humanities. Our aim is to strengthen the position and increase the impact of SSH in the Netherlands through cooperation between the four sectors: economics, humanities, law, and social sciences.

The SSH Council consists of the representatives of Social Sciences and Humanities deans in the Netherlands as well as of the SSH bodies in the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). It therefore represents the whole of SSH in the Netherlands.
