Cooperative sociali e creazione di capitale sociale: il ruolo della responsabilità sociale d'impresa
AbstractThis paper explores the impact of participation in social cooperatives on the social capital of their members. Five social capital indices have been elaborated. They refer to three social capital dimensions in terms of: relational networks, generalized trust and relational skills. The implementation of corporate social responsibility good practices is introduced in the analysis as an independent variable. This paper presents two main findings: i) the positive impact of the participation in social cooperatives on the social capital of members; ii) the positive effect of the adoption of good practices on the creation of social capital for the members of social cooperatives.
