The Social and Human Sciences (Major Programme III – MP III) supports the management of social transformations for inclusive social development, fosters intercultural dialogue, promotes youth development and ethics of science to contribute to peace and sustainable development.">

The Sector mobilizes the social and human sciences to enable social transformations and intercultural dialogue conducive to social inclusion, poverty eradication, environmental resilience, elimination of discrimination, violence prevention and peaceful resolution and social responsibility with a forward looking and a multidisciplinary strategic approach.

 

SHS is the leading Sector in the implementation of the Action Plan of the International Decade for the Rapprochement of Cultures (2013-2022). This decade provides a framework in strengthening the Organization’s action in favour of intercultural and interreligious dialogue, the respect for diversity and a mutual understanding for a better "living together", much needed today in our multicultural societies.

 

In addition to the programme-specific interventions on youth, the Sector coordinates the UNESCO-wide Operational Strategy on Youth for 2014-2021.

The Sector’s programme in bioethics promotes the clarification of the ethical, legal and societal implications of cutting-edge science, emerging technologies and their applications through an inclusive international dialogue.

Beyond promoting the International Convention against Doping in Sport, the Sector’s work also aims at capitalizing the potential of sport as a means for social inclusion and ethical principles, working with partners.
