Integrating society through structural norms

Normative social integration
Applying normative pressure
Integration achieved when the common values in the cultural system are institutionalized in structural elements of the social system. This may occur at three levels: to categories of persons, to collectivities, or to structured roles within collectivities. At each level sanctions exist, as well as the specifications of correct conduct.
Counter Claim:
The evidence is thin that normative pressures work for necessities; Much better are financial incentives or legal sanctions.
