  • Pressure Groups
    • Sectional Pressure Groups
      • Sectional pressure group are groups which protect the interest of a certain section of society. For example, teachers have a pressure group like the NUT and doctors have the BMA
    • Promotional pressure groups
      • Promotional pressure groups often protect the interests of oppressed or disregarded parts of society; ones that cant speak for themselves for example the environment with GreenPeace or animals with PETA
    • Pressure groups are powerful in pluralist societies because they are able to freely fight for what they believe in and actively make a difference
    • An example of when pressure groups have been effective is when the BMA and ASH combined to petition for the smoking ban. It was successful and smoking was then banned in public places.
