With a focus on bowling and boxing, this webinar scrutinizes the ostensible ‘bridging’ functions of sport in an effort to make explicit the limits of what participation in sport can be expected to contribute to the development of cohesive but diverse communities and a democratic way of life.
Considering that social capital and collaborative networks contribute to improving the current situation (COVID-19 effects), the research provides information to strengthen the determinants of social capital in organizations and a review of various methodologies aimed at providing structure to collaborative networks.
This presentation aims at contributing to the research about the impact of the digitalization on business models. Intensive introduction of information and communication technologies in public services changes the interaction between various actors and created new forms of networking (Jafari, Moharami, 2019). Digitalization of the social capital enabled to link together the communities that otherwise would be confronted with the risk of being disconnected (Circular Conversation, 2020).
In this presentation, I will talk about the findings from a Delphi study that explored the perspectives of 24 experts from around the world in a two-round iterative online survey conducted between August and December 2020. The presentation will discuss the areas of agreement and disagreement with regards to utilising social capital in interventions for promoting young people’s mental health.
Dr. Villalonga-Olives will talk about how to collect data on social capital using questionnaires. She will present on the challenges to measure social capital, the development and adaptation of questionnaires to collect data, the problems of differential item functioning and discuss solutions to these problems.
The seminar will look at the role of social capital in education access and success - K12 and higher education using a Bordieuan understanding of the role of the education system in reproducing social inequality. The seminar will explore how the concept of social capital as a non-financial factor can help us to understand higher education access for people from ‘marginalised’ or ‘disadvantaged groups’ and what policy implications arise from these understandings. The presentation will look at previous research, as well as a case study in a developing country context in the Caribbean. In addition, the possibilities and limitations to extend the concept of social capital in a plural, postcolonial society will be discussed.
