Social Norms Lexicon

This Social Norms Lexicon provides a set of simple, clear definitions and examples for terms frequently used in social norms theory, research, and practice. The Passages Project compiled this resource with the goal of fostering a common language around social norms. The Social Norms Lexicon facilitates shared understanding of social norms terms, thereby improving communication and collaboration among stakeholders from different regions and disciplines to advance social norms research and practice. Each term contains three sections in the following layout, including a brief definition, an expanded definition with more detail about the term, and examples of the term.

This resource contributes to the Passages Legacy of Advancing Understanding of social norms and norms-shifting interventions.
