That is why I am interested in social cohesion

In my doctoral thesis, I used longitudinal survey data to research processes of psychosocial integration among young people. My main interest then was the political significance of these processes, given their influence on political efficacy, conditioned obviously also by class, ethnicity, and gender. Whereas I was researching young peoples' ability to integrate themselves back then, I now turn to the societal perspective to examine the interplay of individual and collective efficacy as well as the influence of migration patterns on social cohesion and thus on a given society's ability to integrate.
