Social Capital: A Multifaceted Perspective By Ismail Serageldin, Partha Dasgupta
Publisher: World Bank Publications | Pages: 440 | Date: 2001-08-01 | ISBN: 0821350048 | 23 MB | PDF
In this collection of essays, contributors debate the definition of social capital—-broadly understood as the effect social networks and shared attitudes can have on economic performance—and ask how the concept can be applied to development policy and analysis.How do social capital theories help broaden our thinking about development–and how does this hard-to-quantify concept make analyzing development efforts more difficult? What impact do informal social networks have on the state and other formal organizations? What role does trust play within large organizations? These are some of the questions that the contributors debate. They also suggest methods for measuring social capital and offer examples from China, the Czech Republic, India, Italy, the Republic of Korea, Russia, Tanzania, and Ukraine.
The volume is edited by Partha Dasgupta and Ismail Serageldin. Contributors include James Coleman—whose essay helped establish social capital as an organizing concept in the social sciences—as well as Robert Putnam, Robert M. Solow, and Joseph E. Stiglitz. This book will be of interest to anyone seeking a better understanding of social capital and its impact on development efforts.
Summary: Must have for int’l development professionals
This collection of articles from reknowned scholars and seasoned development practitioners is a fantastic look at the crucial role that social capital plays in making social and economic development projects effective and sustainable. For academics interested in the topic, it’s also a great departure from the more macro theories presented by Putnam and Fukuyama in that it examines the implications of social capital at a community and even interpersonal level, offering rich, qualitative examples. Incredibly interesting, engaging, and practical.
