General information and objectivesMOST Management of Social Transformations (UNESCO)
MOST is the latest of UNESCO's international programmes. Its purpose is to bridge the gap between researchers in the social sciences and between them and decision-makers. The core institutional budget for MOST is provided through the regular budget of UNESCO. The substantive activities of MOST are funded by contributions from UNESCO Member States and from national and international funding agencies.
The objective of the programme is to promote international comparative social science research. Main emphasis is on supporting large-scale, long-term autonomous research and on transferring relevant findings and data to decision makers. MOST also published state-of-the-art reports that assess existing information on specific topics. The overall long-term goal is to establish sustainable links between scientific and policy communities and to emphasise the relevance of social science research for policy formulation.
MOST operates on three high-priority research areas:
MOST research aims at surveying the effects of global changes on local and regional levels in order to support the effort made by local population and authorities to cope with them.
