Coping on women's backs: social capital-vulnerability links through a gender lens


Thieme, S; Siegmann, A (2010). Coping on women's backs: social capital-vulnerability links through a gender lens. Current Sociology, 58(5):715-737.

Abstract

This article aims to conceptualize the gendered interface between social capital and vulnerability. It emphasizes Pierre Bourdieu’s notion of social capital embedded in his Theory of Practice as a fruitful analytical device for this intersec- tion. The authors’ conceptual thoughts are based on a review of the literature on the role of migration-related social networks from mainly diverse Asian contexts and empirical fieldwork in South and Central Asia.
