Social & Human Sciences

Contributing to the dialogue among civilizations and cultures and to a culture of peace through philosophy, the human sciences, good governance, the promotion of human rights, and the fight against discrimination.

The social and human sciences have a vital role to play in helping to understand and interpret the social, cultural and economic environment. They provide research, identify and analyze trends, propose paths of action.

UNESCO has set itself a number of tasks that should help reduce the gap between what is and what should be:
  • Determine what should be (ethics and human rights)
  • Anticipate what could be (philosophy)
  • Study what is (empirical social science research)
