World Social Science Report 2010
- United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO): International Social Science Council (ISSC)
Produced by the International Social Science Council (ISSC) and co-published with UNESCO, 'World Social Science Report, 2010: Knowledge Divides' is the first comprehensive overview of the field in over a decade.
Hundreds of social scientists from around the world contributed their expertise to the publication. Gudmund Hernes, President of the ISSC, Adebayo Olukoshi, Director of the United Nations African Institute for Economic Development and Planning (IDEP), Hebe Vessuri, Director, Venezuelan Institute for Scientific Research (IVIC), and François Héran, Director of Research, National Institute for Demographic Studies (INED), France, are among the experts who presented the Report during its official launch at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris on 25 June 2010.
Social science from Western countries continues to have the greatest global influence, but the field is expanding rapidly in Asia and Latin America, particularly in China and Brazil.
In sub-Saharan Africa, social scientists from South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya produce 75% of academic publications.
In South Asia, barring some centres of excellence in India, social sciences as a whole have low priority.
A comprehensive overview of the social sciences with enormous applicability
Wide-ranging review which will appeal to a broad audience within the social sciences and beyond
