Summary/Abstract: The paper aims to provide a synthesis of Fukuyama’s theory of social capital. Three different conceptual issues are discussed in the article: definition, paradigmatic framework, and methodology. Another aspect of Fukuyama’s concept of social capital is disscused from the perspective of Fukuyama’s great popularity in public policy since the nineties. The concluding part of the paper deals with Fukuyama’s place in academic and policy discourse on social capital.
