Evaluation of the knowledge products of UNESCO's Social and Human Sciences Sector
Serving as a laboratory of ideas, UNESCO helps countries adopt international standards and manages programmes that foster the free flow of ideas and knowledge sharing. Producing and disseminating high quality knowledge is a central activity of the Social and Human Sciences (SHS) sector of UNESCO. This includes the collection, analysis and production of data and information in the form of tools, databases, policy briefs, international norms and standards, thematic research-based publications, etc.
The purpose of this evaluation is to provide SHS management and teams with evidence on the positioning and contribution of the sector’s knowledge products to SHS strategic objectives. The evaluation will assess the relevance, coherence, and added value of SHS’s knowledge products. It will seek to provide a better understanding of how the SHS sector identifies knowledge needs and how it produces, shares, and ensures the quality of its knowledge products. It will also explore uptake that is who is reading SHS products and how are they being used. The evaluation will also assess the extent to which the knowledge products have achieved or contributed to the sector’s expected results at the global and field level
