This Guide explains how to use the mini-Social Cohesion Barometer (The Barometer). The Barometer can be applied in various ways, but its main purpose is to help people in conflicted societies talk about what divides them, what unites them, and to act on this understanding for enhanced social cohesion. The tool is intended for field practitioners who desire to strengthen social cohesion in their relief and development contexts.
