The article addresses the issues of the social capital embedded in the migrants network. Through the presentation of the different migra-tion analytical approaches on the social capital, it explores the role played by the transaction between individuals and groups that facili-tate the social action. Using the theoretical and methodological ap-proach informed by the network analysis, the article presents a re-search on the ethnic associations in Verona, with the aim to verify whether the social support networks embedded in these associations could promote or impede a positive inclusion.

Keywords: Social capital, network analysis, immigration, ethnic as-sociations, religion.
