Zusammenfassung

The present paper deals with the questions to what extend does social capital influence democratic values directly and whether there is an indirect influence through interpersonal and political tolerance. Data from the German and the Swiss part of the European Values Survey (EVS) mid-90s wave are used for the empirical analysis. Conceptual and methodological effects influence the structural equation model. Individual social capital appears to have a moderate influence on democratic attitude, whereas the role of tolerance is of minor importance in Germany and neglectable in Switzerland. The results support the notion that social trust and civic associations foster democratic values. Both personal and political tolerance can be regarded as separate concepts with rather weak relationships in the given framework. The lack of influence of political tolerance on democratic attitude is remarkable, but can partly be attributed to the respective tolerance items, which are binary and do not differentiate between degrees of tolerance.
