Higher Education and Social Cohesion

Conceição Rego, Maria da Saudade Baltazar, António Caleiro


The education level that characterizes the population of a certain country is intrinsically linked to its level of economic and social development, being the correlation between these two factors generally significantly positive. Taking into account not only the economic and social impacts of higher education institutions on any territory, but also the change in the qualification structure of the population, this paper focuses on the contribution of the higher education network to the promotion of social cohesion by means of a cost-benefit analysis.

Key words: Higher Education; Social Cohesion; Territorial Development
