WEBINAR: Dr Mario Marais: The role of Social Capital in ICT4D

This talk tells the story of a project and a research approach. The research used a novel definition of sustainable development that emerged from development philosophies developed in South America. Social capital is central to this definition which was used to study the sustainability of participants in a project to deploy internet access to about schools in a rural region in South Africa.

WEBINAR: Prof. Sally Davenport: Social Capital Ideas and the Building of a Mission-Led Research Programme

Collaboration, and more of it, is often called for across many walks of life, the assumption being that more diverse contributions will improve outcomes and impact. As an innovation researcher with a scientific background, I have always been interested in the role of collaborative activity to successful (or otherwise) research projects. As we are well aware, the development of social capital is viewed as essential to collaboration. Over the years I have explored what appears to support the building of social capital, particularly when geographical proximity isn’t possible, such as in international collaborations and/or virtual organisations.

WEBINAR: Dr Mason Mathews: How social capital is created and maintained to achieve development goals

Some development goals are unattainable with any one type of social capital; some goals require configurations of the three types of social capital. In some instances, people create mutually reinforcing bonding, bridging, and linking social capital that enables them to achieve development goals, while simultaneously expanding all three types of social capital.
