Relational capital in settlements of the garment industry in Mexico (2014)

The aim of this dissertation is to identify and analyze workers’ Social Capital (SC) in three industry clothing Enclaves located in Central-western Mexico. In doing so, we propose a purely relational approach to which SC is assumed as simultaneously composed from social links that an actor (Ego) has with others (Alters) being materialized in a social network, as well as from social resources embedded in such network, which are accessible through relationships, although in an unequal way, by the effect of both the actors’ position in the social structure, and the particular configurations adopted by the network.
