This paper will explore how social capital applies to the Palestinian Territories and will identify the main guises in which it manifests; namely ‘bonding’ social capital and ‘bridging’ social capital. The former manifestation relates to ‘strong ties‘ between people who share similar characteristics; this level of connection occurs within families and small circles of close friends who share similar experiences and information resulting in strong, close knit networks.
