Social & Human Sciences


The Social and Human Sciences enhance understanding of contemporary challenges and help the international community to respond to them more effectively by delivering on the goals set by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Social and Human Sciences assist Lebanon and many other countries in the world in developing capacities that contribute to attaining Sustainable Development Goal 16, especially target 16.7 “Ensure responsive, inclusive, participatory, and representative decision-making at all levels”. 

UNESCO Beirut promotes the development and use of social science knowledge that contributes to better understanding and management of social transformations in the Arab region. It focuses on improving the linkage between research and policy-making, including the formulation, monitoring and evaluation of development actions and processes, the dissemination of research results, best practices and capacity building.
