How do we measure social norms? How can we intervene to change harmful norms? How can we define success in this context? With a focus on gender issues, this Drum Beat offers just a few resources of the many on The Communication Initiative (The CI) site that may help provide both support and insight for your work and fodder for further reflection and research.

DIPPING INTO THE VAST LITERATURE: REVIEWS, COLLECTIONS
  • 1. Mapping the Social-Norms Literature: An Overview of Reviews
    by Sophie Legros and Beniamino Cislaghi
    This map of 22 reviews identifies 4 key themes and highlights areas of agreement and disagreement: What are the definitions of social norms included in the reviews? What pathways of normative influence are commonly identified in the literature? What types of mechanisms are described in the reviews for how social norms come about, evolve, and dissipate? And what categories of agents are identified in the reviews as relevant in the study of social norms? [Nov 2019]
  • 2. Lancet Series on Gender Equality, Norms, and Health
    This collection of 5 papers seeks to provide analysis and insights into the impact of gender inequalities and norms on health, and the opportunities that exist within health systems, programmes, policies, and research to transform gender norms and inequalities. [May 2019]
  • 3. Tipping Point Social Norms Innovations Series
    The briefs in this series highlight innovations from CARE International’s Tipping Point initiative, which aims to promote positive alternatives to child, early, and forced marriage (CEFM) for girls in Bangladesh and Nepal. To guide and inform its work, Tipping Point distilled 8 design principles for engaging with social norms change. [Feb 2016 (Bangladesh briefs); Feb 2018 (Nepal briefs)]
