Definition of Social cohesion:
Social Cohesion is a state in society in which the vast majority of citizens respect the law, one another's human rights and values, and share a commitment to retain social order. The Committee for Social Cohesion defined it as "the capacity of a society to ensure the welfare of all its members, minimising disparities and avoiding polarisation. A cohesive society is a mutually supportive community of free individuals pursuing these common goals by democratic means"[1].
This is the common definition for Social cohesion, other definitions can be discussed in the article
