Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The focus of this essay is placed on the morphogenetic processes that have characterized, over time, organized volunteering, in order to understand how these changes affect the generation and circulation of social capital in our society. In light of the articulated internal differentiation that characterizes the phenomenon in Italy, its distinctive features and new methods of "affiliation" that connect individuals to organizations are clarified. Furthermore, the relationships between volunteering and other social subjects are considered and what results from these processes in society, in terms of social generativity and social capital, with particular reference to the corporate mission, in order to grasp the mechanisms of mutual influence that characterize these relationships. The underlying hypothesis, underlying the present contribution, considers the relational interdependence between the different social subjects as an effective interpretative key to the complex dynamics that characterize contemporary society. This hypothesis is verified at empirical level in light of the results of the surveys conducted with particular attention to the issue of social capital
