"Refers to cooperative connections with people from different walks of life, more valuable than 'bonding social capital'." (Edwards)

"Bridging social capital … refers to the building of connections between heterogeneous groups; these are likely to be more fragile, but more likely also to foster social inclusion." (Schuller, Baron, & Field, 2000)
