The Commitments and Approaches for Shared Societies are grouped in four categories: Institutional Arrangements, Safeguards, Service Provisions and Inter-community Development. The Commitments have been identified as key policy areas which are essential features of a Shared Society with which, leaders have been asked to engage. They also can be used as a checklist to review those areas in which a state has made progress, and those in which more work needs to be done.

The Commitments and Approaches, as well as the Declaration for Shared Societies, were endorsed by the Club de Madrid Members on the Shared Societies Working Group in 2007 (revised in 2008 and 2009). The current version is a work in progress.
