Ken’ichi Ikeda, Professor, Doshisha University Effects of Hierarchical Nature of Social Networks in Japanese/Asian Context: A Survey Approach
Asian values have been discussed in relation to cultural practices. Of these values, I would like to emphasize paternalism and harmony orientation. These values are meaningful to the extent in which they are reflected in social networks; that is, in East Asia networks are hierarchically structured.
This paper will extend the investigation of the effect of social networks in the East Asian context, and focus on moral tolerance as well as personal/institutional trust, both of which are important elements in social capital development.
