Polarisation Research

Socaba incubates new concepts that generate social capital. Investing this social capital through dedicated intervention help enhance social cohesion. Socaba aims to be a front-runner in this field of social innovation, with a particular strength in conducting tailored, on the ground research in previously data poor/difficult environments.

One such concept, ‘Meeting the Polarisation Challenge’, is a research programme targeted at the municipal level across Belgium and designed to use a data-driven approach to provide policymakers with the necessary actionable knowledge to give a voice to the silent majority, understand their interests, and develop appropriate responses to expand the middle ground, enhance social cohesion and resilience, and counter the threat of polarisation in communities.
