Promoting Social Capital Through Public Policy in Hungary; the 2004 National Development Plan

Cartwright, Andrew and Sik, Endre and Svensson, Sara
If public policy should deliberately aim for enhancing social capital is of course a complex issue that can not be answered at length or in the affirmative in a few pages. However, as this paper on Hungary points out, there are many instances of current development policy where fostering self and community confidence is accepted as critical for success. As these programs often address areas where there are many different but related problems, perhaps there is not so much pressure to produce exact rigorous indicators, rather than simply recognize that social capital is accepted as an object and an outcome of public policy.
