Social Capital Dimensions and Levels
November 27, 2020 @ 6:00 am - 7:30 am UTCFree
Principal Consultant Social Capital Research & Training
Certificate of attendance available
This week Tristan Claridge will give a presentation on the dimensions of social capital and how they relate to different levels of analysis. The presentation will be based on his recent article.
Would you like to know more about different approaches to social capital and how they relate to different levels of analysis?
Tristan will discuss the popular distinction between structural, relational, and cognitive dimensions of social capital and how the factors relevant to each dimension are different at different levels; from individuals, to groups and organisations, to whole communities.
Tristan will present a typology that allows for different approaches to social capital to be understood within the context of other approaches. For example, when an author conceptualises social capital as relating to networks, we can understand what factors and dimensions are being included and which are being omitted.
This improves our understanding of different approaches and the key differences between them.
