Dear Rosalyn,

I am not sure whether you’ll consider that equity in participation, network robustness or cross-gender collaborations contribute to social capital. If this is the case, references below might be useful.

Dear all, 

can anyone share references for studies that have used network-based interventions to increase ties (personal or whole networks)? Or intervention studies to enhance social capital accumulation in networks. Health-focused studies are especially helpful. 

Many thanks!
