Home > Management of Social Transformations (MOST) - Updated: 09-01-2003 1:54 pm
Research on contemporary social transformations, addressing such issues as multicultural and multi-ethnic societies, urban development and local governance in a context of globalization.  

MOST aims to:

(1) further understanding of social transformations;

(2) establish sustainable links between social science researchers and decision-makers;

(3) strengthen scientific, professional and institutional capacities, particularly in developing countries;

(4) encourage the design of research-anchored policy.

In February 2002, at the Second World Social Forum (Porto Alegre, Brazil), UNESCO-MOST organized several seminars addressing various aspects of democratic governance.
Recent products of MOST include multi-contributor studies on young people growing-up in an urbanized world and the impact of natural disasters upon the poorest urban populations, and a pedagogic kit of twelve fact-sheets on globalization and sustainable development.
