Complaints as to the loss of social cohesion grow ever louder in modern liberal and individualistic societies. The social capital of a society is considered an essential resource for social integration.

This social capital originates primarily in the social networks of a vibrant civil society, i.e. the clubs, projects and initiatives found in the associative environment.

The Department of Sport Sociology analyses at a theoretical and empirical level the structures of social capital, mechanisms for its development, and its importance for modern society.
