The Social Sciences Portal

Cold war

Welcome to the Social Sciences Portal! This dashboard provides you with a division of Wikiversity that is similar to a "school" at a brick-and-mortar university. Here you will find links to various divisions, schools, research projects, learning resources, content development projects, and so much more.
The Social Sciences were created for the study of social groups and, more generally, human society. This has become an interesting and fascinating endeavor in the face of programs like Wikiversity that doesn't cater to just one social group but that has a global audience. As a result, the education efforts that we pursue in Wikiversity's Social Sciences Portal should be both specific and universal. For instructors it is recommended that a broad range of material is presented to students such that they are able to pursue academic rigor in a variety of subject areas and not from a uniquely Western or Eastern point of view. Rather, students should be given options in selecting multiple points of perspective on the various issues that effect the study of global society. Subsequently, students are encouraged to engage in learning multiple perspectives about the same problem-set as you'll find that the approach to subject-matter on one side of the planet is not always the same as on the other. Let's hope that both students and teachers will engage in this worthwhile endeavor to explore the various aspects of the global, social landscape as we seek to increase our understanding of ourselves and one another.

Featured Social Sciences Biography

September 18, 2009

Simón Bolívar
Simón José Antonio de la Santísima Trinidad Bolívar y Palacios Ponte Blanco, commonly known as Simón Bolívar (July 24, 1783 – December 17, 1830) was a South American political leader. Together with José de San Martín, he played a key role in Latin America's successful struggle for independence from Spain.
Following the triumph over the Spanish Monarchy, Bolívar participated in the foundation of the first Republic of Colombia (today referred to by historians as "Gran Colombia" to avoid confusion with the current nation of the same name), a nation formed from several former Spanish colonies. He was President of Gran Colombia from 1819 to 1830. Bolívar is credited with contributing decisively to the independence of the present-day countries of Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, Peru, and Bolivia and is revered as a national hero in them.

Quick Social Sciences Fact

October 2, 2009

The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom is the supreme court (court of last resort, highest appellate court) in all matters under English law, Welsh law (to the extent that the National Assembly for Wales makes laws for Wales that differ from those in England), and Northern Irish law. It has significant, though more limited, powers with respect to Scots law, and also has jurisdiction to determine devolution disputes; that is, cases in which the legal powers of the three devolved governments (the Northern Ireland Executive, the Scottish Government, and the Welsh Assembly Government) or laws made by the devolved legislatures are questioned. The Supreme Court sits in the Middlesex Guildhall in Westminster, London.

The Supreme Court was established by Part 3 of the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 and started work on 1 October 2009. It took over the judicial functions of the House of Lords, which were exercised by the Lords of Appeal in Ordinary (Law Lords), the 12 professional judges appointed as members of the House of Lords to carry out its judicial business. Its jurisdiction over devolution had previously been held by the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council.

The Supreme Court has no authority over criminal cases in Scotland, where the High Court of Justiciary instead serves as the supreme criminal court. It may hear appeals from the civil Court of Session, just as the House of Lords did previously, but permission to appeal is not a feature of the Scottish legal system and appeals can only proceed to the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom if two Advocates certify that an appeal is suitable.
