Pluralism:

The pluralist perspective is one that asserts that the power of a complex society is divided up, and regulated by a diverse range of interest groups but also subscribes to the idea that power works as a “zero-sum”, meaning that in order for a person or group of people to achieve power it must be taken from someone else. Notable pluralists include social scientist Robert Dahl.

“The Pluralists believe that:

  • Power is dispersed and fragmented.
  • Groups provide a more effective means of representation.
  • The larger the group the more influence it will have.
  • Policies are established through bargaining and compromise and tend to be fair to all in the end.”
