In the context of the deprived rural regions, the potential of exploring the relation between social capital and processes of development seems to be relevant, not necessarily because in the rural territories this relation is clearer or is translated in more efficient results for the development, but because the social capital acquires an unsuspected value due to the deficiency or nonexistence of other factors of territorial competitiveness (economic capital, communication infrastructures, human capital, etc.). This contribution presents the results of a research project financed and coordinated at regional scale in that we have tried to identify and analyze the social relations of local inhabitants through direct indicators in order to define the framework that features the productive activities in different counties of the Cuenca’s province, located within the Castilla-La Mancha region. – (BJ)
