17.07.2017 17:31

RANEPA and Pompeu Fabra University Professor Josep Bertran delivered a lecture to students of RANEPA Summer Campus on July 16. The topic of his lecture was building social capital in foreign relations. Josep started his lecture with giving a definition of social capital and told students how to measure social capital of a society.

Josep Bertran is positive that people want to be within groups and feel their social context which fixes them within a particular framework. “We attach labels to ourselves trying to define who we really are. Each label is a part of a big and beautiful puzzle which makes up our ego,” believes Josep Bertran. In professor’s opinion, it is necessary to get rid of various social labels to promote the development of foreign relations as a form of social capital.

The Campus will be held in Innopolis, next to Kazan. The organizers of the Summer Campus of the Presidential Academy are the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration, the Government of the Republic of Tatarstan, the Association of Innovative Regions of Russia, with the support of the Group of Companies ACIG.
