About Project

World Humanities Forum

The World Humanities Forum (WHF) was launched jointly by UNESCO and the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Korea in 2011 to provide a space for humanities-oriented dialogue and discussion about what it means to be human, and the meaning of life in a time of global transformation. The WHF’s aim is also to strengthen research capacities and the role of the humanities in addressing global challenges.
Specific objectives of WHF are:
1. providing an appropriate place for dialogue between scholars, artists, intellectuals, policy-makers and the general public to reflect on global issues from a humanities perspective;
2. enhancing global discussions and actions to promote humanistic values and to put into practice a renewed humanism in order to achieve a sustainable future for all;
3. spreading state-of-the-art humanities knowledge and the outcomes of the WHF to relevant audiences across the world, thereby promoting similar initiatives at the national and regional levels;
4. strengthening the connections between the humanities and other disciplines such as the natural sciences, the arts and the social sciences in order to foster more multidisciplinary and integrated discussions on major contemporary challenges;
5. and enhancing the capacity of humanities institutional organizations to contribute to academic reflection and public debate at national, regional and international levels.
