Humanities Data. When the Initiative for Humanities and Culture was organized in 1998, the Academy recognized that the humanities are the only disciplines that lack reliable, comprehensive, and consistently updated statistical data necessary to chart trends and draw conclusions.

Humanities Data

To address this need, the Academy began working closely with major humanities institutions, including the National Endowment for the Humanities, the American Council of Learned Societies and the National Humanities Alliance, to develop an infrastructure for the compilation, analysis and publication of comprehensive trend data about the humanities. Taylor & Francis Journals: Welcome. Topic Guides. Conflict Conflict is inherent in all societies and arises when two or more groups believe their interests are incompatible.

Topic Guides

‘Conflict’ is not, however, interchangeable with ‘violence’. Non-violent resolution is possible when individuals and groups have trust in their governing structures, society and institutions to manage incompatible interests. Conflict becomes a problem when this trust and respective conflict management capacities are absent and conflicting parties choose instead to resort to the use of force to secure their goals.

Monitoring and Evaluation

Good design has five components: 1. Clear statements of measurable objectives for the project and its components, for which indicators can be defined. 2. A structured set of indicators, covering outputs of goods and services generated by the project and their impact on beneficiaries. 3. Provisions for collecting data and managing project records so that the data required for indicators are compatible with existing statistics, and are available at reasonable cost. 4.

Examples 1. Projects are designed to further long-term sectoral goals, but their immediate objectives, at least, should be readily measurable. 2. Input indicators are quantified and time-bound statements of resources to be provided. Process indicators measure what happens during implementation. Impact refers to medium or long-term developmental change. 3.

Home. Alpha Examples - Socioeconomic Data. Management of Social Transformations (MOST) Programme. The MOST Programme's primary purpose is to transfer relevant Social Sciences research findings and data to decision-makers and other stakeholders.

Management of Social Transformations (MOST) Programme

MOST focuses on building efficient bridges between research, policy and practice. The programme promotes a culture of evidence-based policy-making – nationally, regionally and internationally. As the only UNESCO programme that fosters and promotes social science research, it is placed in a pivotal position in the overall promotion of UNESCO's goals. Social inclusion and the social dimensions of climate change are its two current strategic priorities areas. PhilPapers: Online Research in Philosophy. Management of Social Transformations (MOST) Programme. Prevention of Organized Youth Violence In the field of youth, youth violence has become an important question in the light of the magnitude that the phenomenon has gained over the past decade in Latin America.

Management of Social Transformations (MOST) Programme

Traditional policies, often repressive, have largely proved to be ineffective to combat this kind of violence. Moreover, rehabilitation while necessary has prove to be an expensive approach and sometimes inefficient. This is why UNESCO emphasizes a preventive approach that considers both: youth as victims and as perpetrators of violence. Free shipping worldwide on all books from The Book Depository.
