Sozialkapital im chinesischen Kontext: Einige Überlegungen und empirische Ergebnisse aus Taiwan
AbstractThis paper empirically explores the determinants of social capital, measured as social trust, in the Chinese context using survey data from Taiwan. After discussing relevant available research from the general discussion and the Chinese context, theories regarding the creation of social trust are tested by means of a multivariate regression analysis. Activities within bridging and bonding formal civil society networks, a notion of control over one’s life and age are significantly related to social trust in Taiwan. Generally speaking the results implicate a similarity of social trust in Chinese and Western societies as measured with surveys that is not suggested by theoretical accounts.
