Building Social Capital with Chinese Immigrants - To Create A Healthier and Safer Community

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Although Asian Americans are known as the “model minority” with great achievements in education and the American Dreams, many first generation Chinese immigrants feel isolated, excluded, helpless, and fearful due to cultural and language barriers. Social capital refers to the social support network, local institutions, shared trust and reciprocity, and collective activities among community members to produce a common good. The low social capital in Chinese communities could be the main reason for high level of fear of crime and lack of participation in crime prevention activities. This panel discusses issues of application of theory of social capital, measuring social capital, and building social capital in the Chinese communities.
