Concept & measurement
This report presents key data findings of the Social Cohesion and Reconciliation Index (SCORE) held in 2019 in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. Research was held in the two oblasts to support the area- based programmatic efforts of DG East and UN RPP programs and to shed light on the human side of the conflict. This report identifies policy entry points and recommendations for strengthening different socio-political, economic and civic dimensions of social cohesion in both government-controlled areas (GCAs) and non-government-controlled areas (NGCAs) of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. Current findings will be placed in a national perspective in 2020, when an all-Ukraine SCORE survey is due to be implemented.
