Institute for Social Sciences and Humanities – also known as Iran Academia - started in 2012 due to violations of right to education, academic freedom and lack of University autonomy in Social Sciences in Iran. The institution is based in The Netherlands and connects its faculty and staff across an extensive global network with a mission to encourage critical thinking and build capacity for its audince and students by increasing access to uncensored knowledge.
We aim to surpass censorship and offer educational services, especially to those who have been deprived of impartial and quality education. We do this by providing excellent learning opportunities, free of charge, through four different platforms
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)
Educational Multimedia Platform
Publishing House for Academic Journals and Books
