I am a lawyer and a sociologist. I have worked for private corporations, state administrations and NGOs as well. My profile is international and cross-cultural. I am residing in Brussels, Belgium. My interests are social policy, social cohesion, ethics, government and political science. Developing an active society independent of bureaucracies and governments is my social policy ideal.

The Social Capital Foundation

Glad you liked my suggestions. If you need any assistance with this, please let me know.

Koen,

Sorry to be so slow in responding, but I've had a second look at the Social Capital Foundation article and posted some comments on the Talk page. Mostly, the SCF approach to social capital comes across as a somewhat idiosyncratic one, and while I'm sure that the folks there and Mr. Hunout in particular would be pleased to have us characterize them as having the correct and proper approach to social capital, our greater duty to our readers is to make clear that the SCF model is somewhat at variance with what other people mean by the term. Once we've gotten the foundation situated relative to other perspectives on social capital, it should be a fairly easy matter to get it approved. Let me know if you have any issues or uncertainties about what I've written and we can try to sort things through. Roger Lohmann 02:54, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Koen,

I've been very busy of late in the outside world, but I finally had a chance to take a look at your changes. I think this is more than adequate for a 1.1 version approval. Thanks for the modifications. I've nominated the article and all of its subpages for approval in four days. There may be some slight modifications and suggestions for changes between now and then. Hopefully, the entire cluster will be approved then. Roger Lohmann 15:37, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
