Building peace in the minds of men and women

Social and Human Sciences - Centres and Institutes

Category 2 Centres are recognized as an important extension of UNESCO’s programme delivery arm and a means to raise UNESCO’s profile in Member States. The Category 2 Centres in the social and human sciences contribute to the sector’s priorities with a focus on youth in line with the UNESCO Operational Strategy on Youth 2014-2021.

Category 2 Centres also provide opportunities to showcase and share the capacity, technical expertise, and knowledge of Member States. They can facilitate regional networking and have the potential to act as resource hubs in these fields.
