The role of social capital in regional development is a multifaceted topic which is studied all over the world using various methods and across numerous disciplines. It has long been evident that social capital is important for regional development, however, it is less clear how this works in practice. Do all types of social capital have the same effects and are different kinds of regions impacted in the same way? This book is the first to offer an overview of this rapidly expanding field of research and to thoroughly analyse the complex issue of social capital and regional development. The authoritative and original chapters, written by leading scholars from around the world, combine theory and new empirical research to analyse various types of regions from metropolitan to rural. A particular focus is on entrepreneurship and the social capital of enterprises, whilst the role of social capital for modern governance and planning is also highlighted. The different components of social capital and data availability are also treated in depth. This Handbook is an ideal resource for students and scholars studying social capital, social networks, and regional growth and development. It also offers great insight for policymakers and planners in the fields of urban, regional and rural development.

'This book is an excellent collection of papers that explore a variety of issues related to regional development while progressing the theoretical development of the concept of social capital. . . the variety of perspectives combine to provide an excellent exploration of the theory and related issues.' -- Social Capital Research & Training 'This excellent volume combines a rich set of papers linking space and social relationships. It reminds everyone who studies entrepreneurship that entrepreneurs exist in a place - and derive strength from their social networks. This provides a wide view of the exciting world of spatial research in the 21st century.' -- Edward Glaeser, Harvard University, US 'In the Handbook of Social Capital and Regional Development, Westlund and Larsson have gathered a truly impressive list of experts on how social capital - an often neglected topic - shapes economic development. A must for all those interested in understanding the dynamics of regional development processes.' -- Andres Rodriguez-Pose, London School of Economics, UK 'Research into the role played by social capital in shaping and fostering regional development is burgeoning, and rightly so. Many previously opaque and little-understood aspects of local development processes and mechanisms are now increasingly coming to light due to our growing understanding of social capital. This has led to both major empirical and theoretical breakthroughs, many of which are reflected and articulated in this excellent volume, comprising some of the very best scholars in the field. This is a valuable resource for all scholars working on these topics.' -- Philip McCann, University of Groningen, the Netherlands
