Socialisation

Socialisation is the process through which individuals learn the norms and values of society, leading to social cohesion and a functional society (according to functionalists). First of all people are socialised into their own family and local community's norms through primary socialisation and then learn universalistic values (the norms and values of wider society) through secondary socialisation (through institutions such as the education system, religious bodies and the media).
