Learning Collaborative Top 20 Resources on Social Norms
The Learning Collaborative to Advance Normative Change envisions a world where the powerful influence of social norms in shaping adolescents’ lives is widely understood, and where projects and programmes improve adolescent sexual and reproductive health by applying normative science at scale. It is an initiative for identifying, sharing and discussing norms-shifting interventions. Organized in three focused Learning Communities (Theory, Measurement, and Scale-Up), the Learning Collaborative contributes to efforts to build consensus on program, evaluation, and scale-up approaches for norms-shifting initiatives aiming to improve adolescent sexual and reproductive health and well-being.
This briefing lists resources (in English) that the Collaborative has identified as most useful to addressing social norms to improve adolescent sexual and reproductive health. These include reports, manuals, peer review publications and books on social norms theory, measurement and practice. These Top 20 Resources on Social Norms were selected because they were judged to advance current understanding, be full of evidence, synthesize the state of the field, demonstrate foundational thinking, and be a great source for references.
