The proposed study aims to generate evidence about the social impacts of cash transfers, with the objective of assessing the longer-term (historical) impact of BLT in 2005 and 2008 on social capital and social cohesion, including levels of trust within the community, participation in voluntary activities and mutual support strategies.

The study also aims to explore whether and how the two unconditional cash transfer schemes interact with each other, in particular whether any longer-term effects of the BLT interact with and affect the implementation of and perceptions of other social protection programmes such as PKH (Conditional Cash Transfer), Raskin (Rice Subsidies) and PNPM (Community Cash Transfers).
