The Humanities World Report will provide much-needed information on the global condition of Humanities research. Identifying commonalities and divergent pathways, it will give a contemporary overview of emerging fields of research and of the institutional conditions in which research is conducted. It will also highlight new opportunities for social and cultural benefits.


Funded by the Swedish Research Council, the Swedish Riksbankens Jubileumsfond and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO Humanities), the Report will be of use to Humanities researchers, academic leaders and research policy stakeholders. It aims to set a baseline against which future exercises of its kind will be judged.
