score

The Social Cohesion and Reconciliation (SCORE) Index is a powerful knowledge tool that follows a participatory approach to measure and monitor the ability of different communities to live together peacefully. The SCORE is based on the assumption that social cohesion (defined as harmonic relations between multiple social groups within a community) and reconciliation (defined as restoring damaged relations between communities, following a conflict) are intimately linked. It uses data collected annually through polling and combines it with a multilevel qualitative approach through which it gathers data from five other sources: Grassroots, Civil Society Organizations, Political Leadership, The Media and International Actors. By doing this, SCORE aims to offer insights into the trends and social realities behind conflict and reconciliation. Ultimately, the objective of the SCORE Index is to support international organizations, local policy makers, civil society and other peace-practitioners, to develop, implement and monitor targeted efforts towards societal cohesion and reconciliation
