Maintaining social relationships - criteria

It is hard to express in material terms what is required for the maintenance of mutual
relationships. We were also unable to rely on existing norms or guidelines in the composition
of this basket. After all, what we are concerned with here are primarily informal rules.

Therefore, together with the respondents from the focus groups, we tried to determine which
material resources are necessary in order to adequately fulfil one’s role as a relative,
neighbour or friend. What does our society expect from people in such social positions?
