December 11, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+0


Invited Speaker

Tristan Claridge

In this presentation, Tristan will explore whether an accepted definition of social capital is emerging in the literature? Using the results of a review of 250 peer-reviewed journal article, Tristan will outline the current state of social capital research – what definitions, approaches, conceptualisations, methodologies, etc are currently being used.

Has the bonding/bridging distinction become a standard? What about structural/relational/cognitive dimensions? Should you be using these? How often are qualitative methodologies used? What about mixed methods or quantitative?
