The social cohesion literature repeatedly criticizes a lack of consensus regarding the theoretical conceptualization of the construct. The current paper attempts to clarify this ambiguity by providing a literature review on the recent approaches. In particular, we suggest three essential dimensions of social cohesion: 1 social relations, 2 identification with the geographical unit, and 3 orientation towards the common good. Each dimension is further differentiated into several sub-dimensions. We argue that additional elements identified in the literature shared values, inequality, quality of life are rather determinants or consequences of social cohesion, but not constituting elements. Suggestions for future research are discussed.
