Summary

Nearly a quarter of people in the world live in a fragile context. They lag behind global averages on a range of socio-economic outcomes, in addition to being at a greater risk of violence and its many consequences. UN Sustainable Development Goal 16, on promoting peaceful and inclusive societies, shows the importance of addressing this population’s needs. The interventions in this systematic review seek to create sustainable peace by promoting social cohesion within low- and middle-income countries (L&MICs) where populations live in fragile contexts. Specifically, we focus on interventions that aim to address intergroup social cohesion – the relationships between different social groups within society.
