Solidary communities: religious minorities and integration

  • Saioa Bilbao Urkidi UPV/EHU
Keywords: religious minorities, solidarity, social capital


This article focuses on the way in which three different communities belonging to religious minorities approach to the task of both granting mutual support among their respective members, and making a contribution to the wider Basque society. By promoting solidarity, these communities become of paramount relevance in the life of their members and attract new ones. We use the category of bonding social capital as analytical tool.
