Group Norms and the BRAC Village Organization â€“ Enhancing Social Capital Baseline
This study used social capital as an organizing framework to capture VO membersâ€™ group behaviour, and their current status along programme activities. The study compared the status of intervention VOs with comparison VOs. Data were derived from 728 VO meeting observations and 2445 semi-structured interviews of VO members. Geographical and infrastructural factors explained some differences among intervention and control groups. Village Organizations (VO) presidents performed better than the general VO/members (GM). VO group solidarity, individual trust, the VOâ€™s client-friendliness, and years of education influenced the extent to which VO members adhered to good VO group norms. [BRAC Working Paper No. 29].
