Che cosa è il capitale sociale


  • Fabio Sabatini

    (University of Rome 'La Sapienza')


Attraverso una rassegna critica della letteratura, questo articolo vuole fornire una prima introduzione al concetto di capitale sociale - con particolare riferimento alla sua rilevanza nello studio dei processi di sviluppo - e dare conto del dibattito in corso su questo tema da più di un decennio. Dalla rassegna emerge la necessità di un approccio multidisciplinare che, superando le tradizionali divisioni tra le scienze sociali, aiuti a comprendere meglio come si verificano la produzione e l’accumulazione di capitale sociale, e come funziona il meccanismo di trasmissione della sua influenza sulla produzione di benessere.
