Establish protocols and procedures for carrying out a “social cohesion audit” of proposed policies and initiatives to test their potential for promoting or damaging social cohesion.
Create systems of community meetings that allow community members to express their views and air their grievances.
Implement a national dialogue to exchange views on the nature of the society at present and how it could be changed to satisfy the interests of all sections and interests in society.
