21st Century tools for social transformation
Promoting Cohesion, Transforming Conflict
The Organization for Identity and Cultural Development creates and disseminates tools and interventions that utilize the structure and workings of identities to transform conflict and build cohesion.
Recent advances in the social, behavioral, political and neurological sciences demonstrate that identities are complex systems that operate within their own internal parameters and mechanisms. Understanding and targeting processes within these culturally-determined identities (intra-culturally) unlocks the potential to target destructive identities and regenerate cohesion between individuals and communities.
The Organization for Identity and Cultural Development (OICD) is a group of academics, practitioners and professionals committed to applying this emerging knowledge and practice to conflict transformation and cohesion building in communities and societies around the world.
