Human and Social Sciences

The Humanities and Social Sciences program aims at: 1) promoting an interdisciplinary reflection locus on research themes that address the social and economic development agenda;  2) investigating social, economic, and cultural processes from the perspective of scientific and technological impacts, of new ways of local and global governance, of the role of the State and of addressing disparities, and of multiple rights violations.
