In recent years, the term “social capital” has received much currency and interest from researchers and public policy makers, and has been studied for its impact on development, resource management, and service delivery in different societies. Social capital does not exist independently in the realm of civil society. Rather, governments, public policies, societal cleavages, economic conditions, and political institutions channel and influence social capital. In many cases, social entrepreneurs, as public officials or actors beyond government, have been catalysts to social capital formation. This article analyses the links between social capital and social entrepreneurship with reference to Asian experience.
