The EHESS is one of the leading European institutions for research in the Social Sciences and Humanities (SHS). Our goal is to provide multi-disciplinary training to future SHS researchers.

Working internationally means that we place an important focus on critical analysis and reflection on and revision of our research methods and approaches.

As a multi-campus institution with bases in Paris, Marseille, Toulouse, and Lyon, and as a member of several European and French research networks, the EHESS is actively and continuously developing its infrastructure, which brings together resources that are accessible to and will enrich the work of all SHS researchers such as: digital editing, documentation, and statistics.
