ISSRA's research is organised around three thematic working groups:
I. History, law and institutions
II. Culture and society
III. Political economy
These working groups allow researchers and partners of the Institute to work together and collaborate on various projects including:
- The organisation of workshops, conferences in different disciplines within the social sciences
- Getting to know more about the ongoing projects of Algerian researchers (including doctoral researchers) and holding discussions on methodological issues.
- Organising training workshops for students, professionals, and civil society actors.
