More in Common works on both short and longer term initiatives to address the underlying drivers of fracturing and polarisation, and build more united, resilient and inclusive societies.
Our work starts with building a strong evidence base through our research. We regularly publish original insights from this work and our research has been covered in hundreds of media articles across our four countries. We develop communication strategies that can unite people across the lines of division and strengthen people’s sense of belonging and identity.
We also develop and test on-the-ground initiatives to counter polarisation and ‘othering’ of groups in our society, and build bridges across dividing lines. We work with large institutional partners such as civil society organizations, faith groups, environmental groups, employers and unions to test and scale the most effective initiatives, aiming to reach large numbers of people and achieve systemic impact.
Beyond our own initiatives, we are committed to help build the field of efforts to counter polarisation and ‘us versus them’ divisions. We are joining with others in helping to define, inform and catalyze impact across this ecosystem.
