Cherns, A. B.; And Others
Within the context of UNESCO publications concerning science development, this first survey of country studies on Belgium, Chile, Egypt, Hungary, Nigeria and Sri Lanka gives information on the present state and organizational structure of social sciences. Evaluations of achievements which should contribute to the development of research and training are provided as well as the identification of steps necessary for the future development and application of the social sciences. The six country studies deal also with the ways for achieving a more efficient transmission of social science information and knowledge to governments and the public, and the principal objectives of social science policies in different social and economic environments. An important part of the survey is the general introduction containing an analysis of social science research and training policies. Based on the factual data and evaluations presented in the country studies, as well as on the experience gained in other countries, this introduction gives a first approach to the elaboration of models of social science policy.
