The Center for Social Security Studies (CSSS) comes from the reorganization of the former Social Security Teaching and Research Section in the Finance and Insurance Department of the School of Economy, the former Center for Social Security Studies, the Social Security Study Institute, and the Public Management and Social Security Department of Wuhan University.

CSSS was approved by the Education Ministry as the Key Research Institute of Humanities and Social Science in the year of 2000. CSSS has a solid intellectual anchor of well-known and experienced scholars engaged in encouraging and productive interaction with promising young researchers. Meanwhile, as the only state-level Social Security Research and Innovation Base, it has been selected as “211 Project” for higher education and the second batch of the national “985 Project”.
