Canetti-Nisim, Daphna. Pedahzur, Ami. Yishai, Yael (2004). Social Capital and Social Exclusion: Immigrants from the Former Soviet Union in Israel. Social Behavior and Personality 32 (1), 55-65.
This paper examines trust and exclusion. Data were collected from 505 Israeli respondents by telephone. Whereas findings show that the influence of social and political variables on both forms of exclusion varied, that of social capital remained constant and substantial. Interpersonal trust was a better predictor of group exclusion, whereas institutional trust was a better predictor of individual exclusion.
