Author (s)

Fahad Khalid


The study provides a deep insight on the relationship between social cohesion and economic growth on the basis of existing literature. The study has categorized the different dimensions of social cohesion on the base of prevailing studies and elaborated their impact on economic growth in an articulated way. We have found after review of literature that, though social cohesion is defined in different dimension and various studies have used diverse indicators to measure the level of social cohesion but there is absence of any comprehensive measure of social cohesion to better understanding the impact of social cohesion on economic growth. So there is need to do more research to analyze the impact of social cohesion on economic growth through a more comprehensive measure which contains all the indicators describe in different definition of social cohesion. The research is helpful for governments to device policy measures to promote social cohesion in the society.

Key words: Economic Growth, Social Cohesion, Institution, Developing Countries.
