Role of local self governments in promoting social harmony What is Social Harmony? Social harmony comprises of two very broadly defined terms, social i.e. in relation to a group of individuals living together in a society, and harmony i.e. peaceful interaction and coexistence, coming together of various parts to form an interconnected whole.
