By interest and an atmosphere of mutual trust

By considering the three distinct dimensions of social capital
(structural, relational and cognitive), it can be assumed that social capital
affect knowledge contribution and gathering by providing access to people with
relevant knowledge; providing a common interest and an atmosphere of mutual
trust and obligation for the value of others knowledge; sharing a common
ability that helps in understanding other people’s knowledge and as well spot-on
correct interpretation and assessment of all level of knowledge (Darvish & Nikbakhsh, 2010). There is increasing
empirical evidence that social capital contributes significantly to sustainable
development and it states that social affairs among the members of a society can be a dynamic resource where without social
capital, society at large will collapse (Coleman, 1988).

For decades however these theories and the
idea of social capital has been put front as an important also a merging concept
embodying these multidisciplinary views (Capello, Caragliu, & Nijkamp, 2009). This concept has been greatly inspired by the studies of scholars
such as James Coleman (1988) and Robert Putnam (1995). For some researchers
from these three defined dimensions of social Capital, relational capital
contains and grealty reflect the features of both structural and cognitive
capital where relational qualities exist under each of the category. For example,
according to the study of Camagini (2008) relational capital, relational private networks, services
or cooperation affect cognitive features in a more direct way. They can all be
seen as part of the social capital which traditionally involves a network
component.Though it may be debated that a social capital exists wherever a
society exists, ‘relational’ capital may be construed as a set of bilateral,
multilateral linkages that local actors have developed, both inside and outside
the local region. On behalf of this reason, among all the elements mentioned in
the innovative cross (Cronin, 2016), it’s evident that relational
aspects or relational qualities strongly linked with the Cognitive dimension and
together it gives a great evident and understanding on social capital theory.
