I have seen both:

Zusammenhalt zwischen xxx


Zusammenhalt unter xxx

I can’t work out whether there is any difference in meaning/usage. Please explain.

  • I only know the first way. In which context have you seen both? – Reese Nov 23 '15 at 22:16

There is no difference in meaning but in usage:

If you mean the cohesion in a group you use unter:

The cohesion among soldiers.

Der Zusammenhalt unter den Soldaten

If you mean the cohesion between two persons or so you use zwischen:

The cohesion between the two siblings.

Der Zusammenhalt zwischen den beiden Geschwistern.

But (because you referring to a group):

The cohesion among siblings.

Der Zusammenhalt unter Geschwistern.

    oder: "D. Z. zwischen Geschwistern". Oder Magneten. Oder Variablen. – user unknown Nov 24 '15 at 3:13
