Item description for Escaping from Behavioural Poverty in Uganda. The Role of Culture and Social Capital by J.C. Munene...
Approached from a socio-physiological perspective, this study examines with reference to Africa, the role of cultural and social capital in the efforts of individuals, communities and other networks to overcome poverty and achieve a sustainable way of life. Moving beyond the familiar poverty indicators as from a conventional development-economics perspective, the study contests that culture plays a major role in development, as the psychological attitudes that determine human behavior and interaction are usually rooted in the cultural environment. It argues that socio-psychological individuals and their actions are the key to determining livelihoods and influencing communities; and that cultural and social capital - the shared values, knowledge, attitudes and expectations of a group or society - is vital for social cooperation and overall human-centered development.
