Being a national and the largest academic institution in the field of sociology in China, it is the earliest sociological institute after the restoration of sociological research and has been playing an important “think-tank” role. In addition, the Institute is the seat of the administrative agency and secretariat of three national associations – the Chinese Sociology Association, the Chinese Social Psychology Association and the Chinese Social Change Research Association. In the meanwhile, the office location of the first individual-named foundation of sociology – Beijing Lu Xueyi Sociological Development Foundation is also affiliated here.

                      Currently, CASS is carrying out the Philosophy & Social Science Innovation Project (PSSIP), emphasizing the idea of making the Academy powerful through scientific research, talents and administration. Up to present, the Institute of Sociology has undertaken 7 subjects of PSSIP. In specific, they are the Research on the Conditions & Index System of Social Quality in China, the Differentiation of Social Groups & the Governance of Urban Society: the Research on the College-Student Group, the Middle-income Group & the Business-owner Group, the Research on Family Stream & Its Policies Concerned in the Context of the New-Type Urbanization, Social Policies & the Modernization of Social Governance at the Grassroots, the Measurement and Index System of Social Mentality, the Governance of Rural Public Affairs, and Social Theories & Socialism. Currently, the Institute has 7 principal research fellows, 20 executive research fellows, 13 research assistants and 11 external assistant in the Project.
                      In the Institute, there are one person who is known as the national cultural master as well as the Four Kinds of First Batch Talents, two academicians of CASS, one person who is the scholar of Ten Thousands of People Plan implemented by the Organization Department of the Central Committee of CPC, one person who is the counselor of Beijing Municipal Government, four young & middle-aged scholars who have received the award of making outstanding contributions to the country and 27 persons who receive the State Council special allowance.

                      The Institute attaches great importance to the cooperation with domestic education departments, scientific research institutions and actual work departments, and has established a number of social investigation bases in the Qinan Community of Beijing, Sanhe County of Hebei Province, Taicang City of Jiangsu Province, Wenzhou City of Zhejiang Province, Jingzhou City of Hubei Province, Jinjiang City of Fujian Province, and the Dayaoshan Area of the Jinxiu Yao Nationality County of Guangxi Autonomous Region, etc. In addition, It has also cooperated with the University of Shanghai, Beijing Industrial University, the Normal University of Jiangxi and Ningbo University of Zhejiang Province to set up the Coordination Center of Social Governance on Megacities, the Coordination Center of Social Construction & Social Administration of Beijing, the Coordinative Innovation Center of Economic & Social Development of Jiangxi Province and the Research Center of Rule of Law & Harmonious Society. Besides, the Institute has made joint efforts with the Research Institute of the Chinese Social Governance of Beijing Normal University and some other academic institutions and universities to hold the Chinese Social Governance Forum every year.
                      The Sociological Department of the Graduate School of CASS is established within the Institute of Sociology. The Institute of Sociology has a national first-class Doctor Station, and at the same time, takes the responsibility of training Master Students in the field of social work. Besides, the Institute has set up a sociological postdoctoral research station to enroll the state-funded and project-funded postdoctoral fellows every year and has successfully held the Chinese Sociological Postdoctoral Fellows Forum for nine times.
                      The idea of the Institute of Sociology of CASS is “promote the sociological research sinicized and realize the construction of the Institute of Sociology internationalized”. In the meanwhile of the research on major theoretical and practical issues in the process of the construction of socialist modernization in China, the Institute has vigorously carried out foreign academic exchange activities which are demonstrated as the followings:
                      I. Conduct academic exchange activities with the world-famous universities and academic institutions such as Stanford University, John Hopkins University, the University of California at Berkeley, the University of North Carolina and the London School of Economics, etc. Only in the Year of 2015, there were 95 person-time research fellows at 53 batches to conduct academic exchange activities at abroad, and in the meanwhile, there were more than 100 foreign scholars to have a visit to the Institute.
                      II. Develop substantive exchange programs with foreign institutions. Take the first transnational research laboratory in China - the Laboratory of the Research on Sino-French Post-Western Sociological Theories & Field Studies for an example, it is one of the cooperative agreements signed by the Chinese and French governments when the President of France Francois Hollande made his visit to China in 2013. Besides, other exchange programs include “Sino-American Sociological Exchange Platform”, “the Laboratory of the Research on Sino-British Sustainable Consumption”, “the Laboratory of the Research on Social Welfare in China and the Scandinavian Countries”, “the Comparative Study on Sino-Russian Social Change”, “the Research on Silk Road Economic Zone-Oriented National Economic Reform & Social Development”, “the Comparative Study on Social Change of Emerging Market Countries: China and Hungary”, etc.

The institute has cooperated with the Springer Publishing Group of Germany to publish Chinese Sociology, the first sociological journal of China in English, and has published English monographs such as “the Comparative Study on Social Structure of BRICS”, “China’s Domestic & International Migration”, “Rural Social Welfare of China”, “People’s Livelihood of Contemporary China”, “the Study on Eco-migration in Ningxia Autonomous Region”, etc. at foreign publishing houses. In addition, the Institute has also published the monographs of “the Comparative Study on Sino-Russian Social Structure” and “the Comparative Study on Sino-Russian Youth” in Russian and the monograph of “the Resurgence of Japan” in Japanese.
                      IV. Hold the influential academic conferences at abroad, such as “The China Day” during the annual meeting of International Sociology Association held at Yokohama of Japan, the Chinese Social Science Forum held at Stanford University in 2012, the Chinese Social Science Forum held at John Hopkins University in 2014, the Round-Table Conference of Youth Studies held at the Brookings Institution of the US, the Symposium of Social Development of the Emerging Market Countries held at Warsaw of Poland in 2014, the Symposium of Sino-Spain Social Change held at Madrid of Spain in 2014, the Chinese Social Science Forum held at the University of Helsinki of Finland in 2015 and the Round-Table Conference of the Research on Social Governance held at the United Nations Development Research Institute located at Geneva of Switzerland in 2015, etc.

                      The Institute of Sociology has won many honorary titles such as “the Capital Civilization Unit”, “the Civilization Unit of China’s State Organs” and “the Advanced Trade Union Organization of the National System of Education, Science, Culture and Health”, etc. The Chinese Sociology Association affiliated to the Institute has been awarded the title of National Advanced Social Organization by the Ministry of Civil Affairs in 2015; and the Postdoctoral Research Station of the Institute of Sociology has been awarded the title of National Excellent Postdoctoral Research Station.
