This conference will discuss openly the issues associated with social capital, social inclusion and social cohesion. As possible examples, the following topics may be presented and/or discussed at the conference:

 

 

 

  • Social capital and social inclusion, conceptual and empirical links,
  • Ethnic diversity and social capital, migrations, and minority integration,
  • Social mobility and social capital,
  • Social cohesion and revenue inequality issues,
  • Social capital and public policies, community development, urban policies,
  • Lifelong learning, education issues related to social capital,
  • Social capital, families, and the private life,
  • Definition and measurement issues about social capital,
  • Issues revolving around the TISR model,
  • Other issues proposed by participants.

This type of conference brings together social scientists, economists, policymakers, social workers and the widest spectrum of the involved players to explore the social cohesion issues arising in our society. The objective is to make progress on the understanding of these issues, by shedding light on some current developments and drafting innovative, practical responses. The Social Link Cycle is a line of conferences dedicated to the bond between people within society, and its contemporary crisis.

To submit a paper, a roundtable or to volunteer to serve as a chair or discussant, please contact conferences@socialcapital-foundation.org

Papers submitted and accepted before 31 January 2008 will be inserted into the programme of the conference. Proposals are reviewed within two weeks of submission.

We look forward to receiving your proposal and hope you will be able to join us in Malta in September 2008.
