Benefits of Social Capital: Urban Solid Waste Management in Bangladesh

Front Cover
LIT, 2005 - History - 239 pages

The theory of social capital cannot be universally applied unless it is contextualized according to the local conditions of a given society. Based on extensive field research in Dhaka and Chittagong the author shows that collective action with respect to urban solid waste management can work well when the public has confidence in prevailing law and order.

Shahjahan H. Bhuiyan teaches at the Islamic University at Kushtia, Bangladesh.
