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. 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. The Humanities Indicators is a result of this work and is modeled after the Science and Engineering Indicators published biennially by the National Science Board. Humanities Data Humanities Data

Conflict Conflict is inherent in all societies and arises when two or more groups believe their interests are incompatible. ‘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. Topic Guides Topic Guides
Good monitoring and evaluation design during project preparation is a much broader exercise than just the development of indicators. Good design has five components: 1.

Management of Social Transformations (MOST) Programme 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. 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.
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. 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. In this context, the module “youth and prevention of youth organized violence in Latin America" of the MOST tool in its mission to promote civic engagement of youth by developing their sociopolitical capacities in terms of human rights, seeks to provide research findings and experience on practical implementation of integrated policies and actions to prevent violence.
