Social Capital Networks

Social capital, whether defined as networks for getting things done or as trust, is important insofar as it influences individual wellbeing, and health is an integral part of wellbeing. This website presents CSPP research on social capital in European, post-Communist and developing countries within the School of Social Sciences in the U. of Aberdeen and in collaboration with medical scholars at University College London led by Professor Sir Michael Marmot and at the London School of Hygiene, led by Professor Martin McKee.
