Students’ Dorms as Agents of Social Capital


  • Davor Vidaković



In this paper, we will try to prove one of our hypotheses, which is that
the construction of social capital is present in students’ dorms. The
social capital of an educational institution such as a students’ dorm
is reflected in the mutual trust and cooperation of all elements of the
education system. These are primarily pupils, educators and parents.
Of great importance is the degree of mutual trust of students and
educators, especially the perception of students about it. Cooperation
among students does not exclude the rivalry. In the very concept of
this paper, a case study will be applied to the example of secondary
school students’ homes on the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
