Abstract

Social capital can be built up when more people are connected to each other. The higher the social capital, the greater the impact on the social domain of sustainability. Better spectrum access through efficient spectrum allocation can improve connectivity of people. Enhanced connectivity can strengthen the social capital and hence can impact the social domain of sustainability in a positive way. However, corruption in such an allocation process can hinder the efficiency and result in misallocation of resources. Further, it can impact connectivity and social capital. The chapter reflects through all these facets to form a link between spectrum allocation, social capital and sustainability.
