Democracies are vulnerable. Factors that negatively affect their stability come from low democratic capacity, weakness of the civil sector, threat of terrorism, migrant crisis and environmental threats.
One of the factors that can effectively positively influence resilience is the social capital stocks. The most important factors that negatively affect social capital stocks are the way the rule of law is applied, cause of low institutional trust, unemployment and relative poverty as better described as a high degree of inequality.
In order to strengthen resilience, meaning easy return to pre-crisis situations and successful facing threats to communities, ending to reduce the vulnerability of democracies, it is necessary to invest in social capital.
