    La communication présentée porte sur une revue de la littérature sur le thème du capital social à partir de 75 articles publiés lors de la décennie écoulée (2002-2011) dans les principales revues dédiées à la recherche en PME et en entrepreneuriat. Le capital social est souvent considéré comme une ressource clé pour la PME, source de performance et d'efficacité dans la démarche entrepreneuriale. Nous montrons que les problématiques envisageables à partir du concept de capital social sont particulièrement nombreuses et diverses mais que toutefois elles reposent sur des constructions théoriques et des démarches méthodologiques très hétérogènes. Le capital social est le plus souvent utilisé comme une variable explicative de la performance de la PME ou de la démarche entrepreneuriale. Ce champ de recherche s'il peut toujours être complété parait cependant moins nécessaire aujourd'hui. Par contre, les recherches émergentes sur le capital social où celui-ci est appréhendé non plus comme une cause mais comme le résultat d'un processus managérial du dirigeant de PME ou de l'entrepreneur, s'avèrent, selon nous, plus pertinentes et porteuses de perspectives pour notre champ. Les travaux sur les effets négatifs et sclérosants du capital social sont également des pistes à creuser en matière de recherche sur les PME.
