Social Cohesion

Social cohesion is a concept referring to the collective well-being of societies, while quality of life refers to cognitive well-being at the individual level.

As a societal goal, social cohesion means equal distribution of welfare and well-being among various groups and regions. Social cohesion may contribute to various social outcomes, such as health, cultural well-being and economic prosperity.

In the endeavors to attain better social cohesion measures such as equal distribution of education, human and cultural services and balancing the development of cities and the rural areas are used.

Research collaboration among Tampere University, Pori Unit and University of Turku, School of Cultural Production and Landscape Studies focuses on these broad topics.
