The Concord Project is an international research and action program whose mission is to strengthen “concord organizations,” which bring together people with fundamentally opposing views or identities for the purpose of promoting civil society while recognizing group differences. In research, the Project identifies concord organizations and investigates the characteristics that make them successful at creating “bridging social capital”–the human and organizational resources that span social differences. In practice, the Project disseminates its findings widely, through written materials and training programs to nonprofits, NGOs, governmental organizations, foundations, and businesses interested in developing stronger cross-community structures and leadership skills.
