Personal networks are complex variables characterizing the social resources and constraints of individuals and can be used to explain outcome such as behaviour, health, or job performance.

IS projects have been extensively studied, yet continue to be riddled with problems. The concern is aggravated in collaborative IS projects since they involve dual challenges of managing interorganizational relationships and of integrating diverse knowledge bases across organizations that may possess distinct strategic goals and conflicting interests.

Historically, the church has affirmed the right of the civil magistrate in matters of capital justice. Contemporary culture, in contrast, is permeated with arguments against capital punishment. Even among those professing Christian faith, there is widespread opposition to the death penalty. As a trend, the ever-increasing role of the media in manipulating public sentiment in the face of pressin...

This paper adopts a complementary approach to previous researches based on normative assumptions. A social capital perspective is embraced to allow us to focus on the nature and quality of...
