Identify the Determinants of the Outcomes of the Politics of Social Division and Explain Them.

The three determinants of the outcomes of the politics of social division:

  • People’s perception: If people view their identities to be exclusive and superior, it becomes difficult to accommodate them.
  • Role of community and culture: It depends upon how political leaders raise demands on behalf of a community. It is easier to accommodate demands that are within the constitutional framework and are not at the cost of another community.
  • The role of political party and government: Reaction of the government to the demands of different communities also determines the outcome. If the rulers are willing to share power and accommodate the reasonable demands of a minority community, social divisions become less threatening for the country.
