SCORE Liberia 2018 assesses over 350 indicators to investigate social cohesion in the country, focusing on civic attitudes, intergroup relations, violence tendencies, gender dynamics as well as effectiveness and confidence in governance institutions. Evidence presented in this policy brief is based on the advanced statistical analysis using a representative random sample of over 6200 people across Liberia. SCORE Liberia findings aim to support evidence-based public policy, and development and reconciliation investments to improve their efficacy and impact in order to contribute to sustaining peace in the country. This policy brief focuses on identifying evidence-based pathways to fostering non-violent constructive citizenship in Liberia, and should be read in conjunction with the policy brief on mitigating violence tendencies.
