The theoretical disorientation concerning the concept of social capital is contrasted with its application to the study of a rich variety of empirical phenomena. Methodologically, social capital has been usefully employed at various analytical levels, micro, meso and macro. The goal of this essay is to emphasize the modalities used to operationalize this concept in the immigration field and so to discuss its impact on immigrants’ political integration. Analytically, we will consider two dimensions related to social capital: structure and relationship. Empirically, we will present immigrants’ social capital both with respect to its meso level dimension concerning immigrants’ organizations and with respect to its individual dimension.
Keywords: Social Capital, Immigrants, Immigrant Organizations, Political Participation.
