Welcome to the Social Cohesion Hub

Note that this collaborative hub was only recently launched. The current version is only the starting point for a complete hub that will develop in the next months. Contribute content to increase your work’s visibility, connect with others and help the hub grow!

The togetherness of societies is not only intrinsically valuable, but it is also central to stable and peaceful societies, to the effectiveness of policies and to sustainable development. The Social Cohesion Hub is a collaborative platform that brings together knowledge and experiences on social cohesion, including different concepts, data, publications and projects in the field of development cooperation. Use the Hub to discover what social cohesion is, how it is measured and how projects aspire to foster it, and read recent academic and policy insights on the subject.

The #SoCoHub is a knowledge-sharing platform and, therefore, depends on your input. Contribute to the Hub by adding information about your own work on social cohesion here.
