The purpose of this practical how-to guide is to provide an overview of key tools, methodologies and approaches in the social sciences that can be utilised for measuring intangible change in conflict-affected and fragile environments.  The paper presents the tool and examines the strengths and weaknesses of the individual tools. Each tool is accompanied with a small discussion on how the tool can be used for measuring hard-to-reach, intangible changes in situations of conflict and fragility.  When appropriate, examples on how to apply the tools in conflict and fragile environments have been integrated.  The primarily focus of this paper is how to measure what is often considered un-measurable. The challenge is how do we collect information for intangible changes in attitude and behaviour in complex conflict and fragile environments? No single tool, method or approach is a cure-all panacea to the measurement challenges in peace & conflict and security & justice....
