"In Whom do we Trust? The Level and Radius of Social Trust among Sport Club Members" – Research paper of the OSSKAR study published online in the International Review for the Sociology of Sport

A first research paper of the cooperation project OSSKAR (Organized Sport and Social Capital - Revisited) by Prof. Dr. Ulrike Burrmann (TU Dortmund University), Prof. Dr. Sebastian Braun (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) and Prof. Dr.Michael Mutz (Justus-Liebig-University Gießen) has now been published online in the International Review for the Sociology of Sport.

The publication refers to the widely-discussed idea that voluntary organizations like sport clubs would produce social capital, popularized through the research of Robert D. Putnam, and compares social trust levels of members in sport clubs and in other voluntary associations and non-members of those associations.
