Focuses on the study of democratic processes, with special emphasis on their participatory features. Topics include conceptual and theoretical definitions of pluralism, at specific points in time and through history; structures for the articulation of interests and values, such as group and party systems and social movements; barriers to and opportunities for pluralism within given institutions, such as in business corporations and in the armed forces, as well as in ethnic communities and in religious organisations. Activities: The committee usually meets once a year. New members willing to take an active part in the committee's activities are thoroughly welcome.
