3 Participation as a Method of Social Integration 51 While, by definition, strong ties refer to relationships that are characterized by mutual affection and commitment that produce reciprocal support and frequent interactions, weak ties consist of less affectionate and committed relationships (Granovetter 1973; Putnam 2000). Although weak ties may also include relationships that are based on repeated and frequent interactions, weak ties are formed on the grounds of particular interests such as in leisure or political clubs, or because of specific social roles individuals have in different settings.

Social integration in the political sphere comes with power and refers to people’s action-based involvement in processes of political bargaining and decision-making in order to pursue their interests. Thus, it is linked to people’s social status in general as well as to their involvement and activities in political groups, organizations, and social networks. It is difficult to distinguish the social-cultural system from the societal community in terms of different spheres of involvement because Parsons does not provide clear definitions of either, and both are to some extent linked to cultural frameworks and social relationships.

While social integration in the economic sphere is closely related to production and consumption as people obtain the necessary means to buy goods and services, there are also important non-material aspects of labor market participation. Employment is considered to yield positive effects on people’s lives above and beyond mere financial and material aspects that relate to people’s well-being in different ways (Jahoda 1982; Jahoda et al. 1971; Knabe and Rätzel 2011). Specifically, employment and labor structure people’s daily routines, from their time allocation to their lives in general.
