Membership to the ISSP is institutional and by country. One or more than one institute in a country can co-operate on ISSP research (cf. France and Spain).

Members agree to conduct ISSP surveys in accordance with fixed ISSP requirements.

A standard list of questions and a description of sample design have to be answered by any country (institute) interested in joining the ISSP. Applications should contain:

  • full answers to the standard questions and description of sample design. Please download here.
  • a letter of application, details and examples of research carried out by the organisation(s)
  • an organisation profile for each institute applying.

More detailed information on the application process as well as requirements and benefits of ISSP membership are provided here.

Please direct any queries about membership to the ISSP secretariat.
