Visiting Assistant Professor Martín Mendoza-Botelho’s article “Social Capital and Institutional Trust” was accepted for publication in the prestigious Journal of Development Studies. Using the notion of social capital as background, this article measures the effects of institutional changes, such as decentralization, in civic participation and activism in countries with weak institutional settings. Although the article focuses on Bolivia’s emblematic process of decentralization, or Popular Participation, as it was known, the lessons learned apply to countries embarked on state reforms and their links with civil society.
