  1. Organised groups as an evolution of the democratic process towards more participation
  2. Organised groups as a perversion of representative democracy
  3. Klijn and Skelscher's four conjectures suggest that there can be other situations in the relation between organised groups and democracy

The shift from government to governance has had an impact on the way politics are viewed by the people, and power seems to be decentralized and dispersed. This means that the institutional structures traditionally in charge of policy-making now have to share these skills with organized groups and communities of experts. This brings the question of whether this situation challenges the representative democracy of the UK. Indeed, does the loss of the government imply a transfer of power and decision-making towards the people? For those who view the state as an omnipotent and threatening figure compared to an individual, the existence of a multi-level governance is inevitable.
