Mastinu - input2012

  1. 1. Social capital in Sardinia: a factor for development? - Analysis and measurement - by Miriam Mastinu Ph. D Student - DADU of Alghero University of Sassari, Italy
  2. 2. Social capital in Sardinia: a factor for development?Miriam Mastinu Key words: social capital, methodology, territorial policies Objectives: - build a complete map of the social capital of all municipalities of Sardinia - propose an example of local development policy for an area of North West of Sardinia Results: - design map of distribution of social capital - building a strategic axes and guidelines for Villanova Monteleone’s territory
  3. 3. Social capital in Sardinia: a factor for development?Miriam Mastinu - Social capital - Robert Putnam - “the set of features of social organization, such as trust, solidarity, tolerance, customs, norms of reciprocity and networks of civic engagement that can increase the efficiency of society by facilitating the coordination of individual actions and collective action” 1993 - Putnam’s work: Making Democracy Work 2007 - Massimo Cartocci in "Mappe del tesoro. Atlante del capitale sociale in Italia” - 4 indicators
  4. 4. Social capital in Sardinia: a factor for development?Miriam Mastinu - Social capital - 4 indicators - the reading of newspapers from the population. - the level of voter turnout of the population - the donation of blood - the number of sporting associations
  5. 5. Social capital in Sardinia: a factor for development?Miriam Mastinu MY RESERCH - Methodology - Data: - demographic situation Population from 1950 to 2010; male and female population; number of graduates; employed and unemployed; young people and older; - solidarity expressed by the number of sports clubs and volunteering association - civic engagement by turnout - ability of municipalities to obtain funding
  6. 6. Social capital in Sardinia: a factor for development?Miriam Mastinu MY RESERCH - Methodology - After the data collection phase, I had to define the number and types of variables to be used in the construction of the model for the classification and mapping of the 377 municipalities in Sardinia. The following table collected these indexes: Variables Employment rate, employment rate of women: index of senility, rate of schools, rate of instructed, rate of associations; turnout; funding (€ per capita) Based on these selected items, I decided to aggregate the data by constructing an indicator equal to the average of all indices.
  7. 7. Social capital in Sardinia: a factor for development?Miriam Mastinu MY RESERCH - Results - The analytical work was completed with the development of a series of maps. These maps represent the distribution of social capital on the Sardinian territory as Cartocci did in 2007 but also with the representation of all the variables in the form of graphics. This image is an example of a map that refers to the employment rate.
  8. 8. Social capital in Sardinia: a factor for development?Miriam Mastinu MY RESERCH - Results - The aggregation of all data allowed the construction of a single map that defined the distribution of social capital by town. The Sardinian realities were divided into 6 clusters with values ranging from - 0.5 to +0.5. The towns on the coast are characterized by higher values of social capital. The realities of a larger size, among other things, such as provincial capitals or other municipalities with more than 10 000 inhabitants, have the highest values.
  9. 9. Social capital in Sardinia: a factor for development?Miriam Mastinu MY RESERCH - Territorial policies - A clear example of this phenomenon is the area that I chose for define a number of guidelines for local development. The area I studied is the Monteleone Area composed by the municipalities of Villanova Monteleone, Romana, Monteleone Roccadoria, Montresta.
  10. 10. Social capital in Sardinia: a factor for development?Miriam Mastinu MY RESERCH - Territorial policies - In addressing the issue of public policies, I decided to build three strategic axes and many specific actions for each of them. Strategic axis Guidelines Institutional Union of Municipalities - Territorial Pact - Local Tourism System - Participation Social Educational system - Local identity - Events - Reception - Regional Centre of Photography Allocations Communications system - Accommodations – Territorial Marketing
  11. 11. Social capital in Sardinia: a factor for development?Miriam Mastinu MY RESERCH - Conclusions - Would be useful, for better understanding and use of data, extend the search field, trying to insert in measuring also the cultural heritage, in order to promote a new form of development based on these two new elements. Another interesting element of research is the relation and the connection between the municipalities and the surrounding territories. Based on my previous research, is evident that the social capital of a city can influence other communities.
