Our Mission

The Institute was founded in 1946 as the Ethnographic Institute of the Slovak Academy of Sciences and Arts. In 1994 it was renamed to the Institute of Ethnology of the Slovak Academy of Sciences and later in 2018 to the Institute of Ethnology and Social Anthropology the Slovak Academy of Sciences (SAS), and, today, it is one of the leading institutions in the field of ethnological and anthropological research in Slovakia.

Our mission

Our research focus is distributed between basic, problem-oriented and applied research. We contribute to the search for scientific answers to current as well as historical social issues and challenges. We conduct the field research in Slovakia and abroad – in Central Europe and elsewhere in the world.
