What is this New Political Paradigm?
Abstract:The article examines traditional political paradigms and suggests new alternatives to ensure that the political process is more open an inclusive. It argues that traditional political elites continue to dominate the politics and they do not represent social movements at the grass root level. The article discusses some of the social and political transformations that promise to address more effectively policy strategies for social change and material well-being. The article suggests a new model and some of the key elements in this new political paradigm, including ‘environmental solidarity ‘and a new ethic.
