This book confirms the significance of social capital as an analytical tool, while challenging the basis on which current policy is being developed. It offers a wealth of evidence on a topic which has become central to contemporary government; provides a detailed empirical investigation of the relationship between social capital, knowledge creation, and lifelong learning; relates the findings to wider policy debates; questions the dominant theoretical models of social capital; and confronts the assumption of many policy makers that the obvious solution to social problems is to ‘invest in social capital’.

Keywords: social capital; knowledge creation; lifelong learning; policy debate; government; policy makers
