  Political organisation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A political organization is any organization or group that is concerned with, or involved in the political process.
Political organizations can include everything from special interest groups who lobby politicians for change, to think tanks that propose policy alternatives, to political parties who run candidates for elections, to terrorist groups that use violence to achieve political goals.
In a broader sense, a political organization can also be viewed as a political system, as long as it includes the entire system and body of government.

 Celtic League (political organisation) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Celtic League is a political and cultural organisation in the modern Celtic nations of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Cornwall and the Isle of Man.
The fundamental aim of the Celtic League is to contribute, as an international organisation, to the struggles of the six Celtic nations to secure or win their political, cultural, social and economic freedom.
The Celtic League should not be confused with the similar organisation, the Celtic Congress, which tends to be purely cultural and apolitical.

 Anarchist organisation ... the next step   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
Although extracting a coherent analysis of political organisation from Bakunin's scattered works is a politically hazardous task, it is clear from what he has written and from his activities that he did understand the necessity and potential influence of an organised revolutionary minority.
In the context of a political organisation the cadre is the layer of skilled agitators on which the growth of the organisation depends.
Political [education] is not a formal scholastic exercise but a continuous process which requires that the organisation is geared towards political debate at all levels.

 General Remarks on the Question of Organisation
When these organised masses stand up in mass fights and revolutionary actions, and the existing powers are paralysed and disintegrated, then simultaneously the leading and regulating functions of former governments fall to the workers' organisations.
The old forms of organisation, the trade union and political party and the new form of councils (soviets), belong to different phases in the development of society and have different functions.
In a rising and prosperous capitalism, council organisation is impossible because the workers are entirely occupied in ameliorating their conditions, which is possible at that time through trade unions and political action.

 Institute of Communication Ethics - organisation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
Organisations compete in the public realm for resources and influence and should be viewed critically in order to assess how they support the common good.
The tendency is for organisations to use people working in groups to achieve goals, while group process, rights and understanding are limited by the expedience implied and protected in organisation systems.
The organisation is often accused of limiting the right of individuals in return for economic gains, However, in the information age, individual rights to health, education and free-speech are more important and the organisation will need to respond to these shifts in individual empowerment, education and aspirations.

The increased political role that the Iraqi Shi'a are seeking after decades of political repression is also of interest to other regional states who possess politically under-represented Shi'a minorities themselves.
The Ba'thists initiated a crackdown on Shi'a political activism, driven in part by the secular nature of the Ba'thist ideology and in part by their view of a politicized Shi'a as a threat to the stability of the regime.
The political leadership of al-Da'wa consists of lay Shi'a, thereby maintaining the separation of jurisprudential oversight from the political executive.

 Lenin: 1901/witbd: The Primitiveness of the Economists and the Organization of the Revolutionaries   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
In countries where political liberty exists the distinction between a trade union and a political organisation is clear enough, as is the distinction between trade unions and Social-Democracy.
Political thinking is sufficiently developed among the Germans, and they have accumulated sufficient political experience to understand that without the “dozen” tried and talented leaders (and talented men are not born by the hundreds), professionally trained, schooled by long experience, and working in perfect harmony, no class in modern society can wage a determined struggle.
Since the entire political arena is as open to the public view as is a theatre stage to the audience, this acceptance or non-acceptance, support or opposition, is known to all from the press and from public meetings.

 Commentary on the law of political parties
Despite the sweeping (but partly routine) declarations of liberty in the constitution, the new laws relating to political parties and the press showed that democracy and freedom of speech were intended to operate within carefully-controlled limits.
The political equation was not changed by them; the elements were all familiar, their strengths and weaknesses understood, even if some of the party names were new.
Besides making no distinction between political organisations and parties, this appeared to assume that any political organisation must be seeking to achieve power and should therefore be considered a party.

 Attac Norway: A Cross-Political Project against Global Capitalism
Norway already has a number of strong organisations resisting the supra-national powers of the EU, and as long as the EU is viewed as a capitalist project, on which basis Attac will criticise it, those who are engaged in these questions will have to leave aside their personal agendas in order to make Attac work.
When some of the most vital political organisations in Norway are as strongly focused around the EU-question and issues of direct importance to the Norwegian people, an organisation focusing on political and economic problems that are relatively distant from people's everyday lives may encounter problems mobilising support.
AI is a global organisation working to criticise the wrongdoings and violations of human rights conducted by national governments, with focus on very specific cases, while Attac, at the moment, looks like a series of national organisations working to criticise a slightly undefined global phenomenon.

In the calm political culture of the Netherlands in the mid-nineteenth century, the agitation that took place in England was seen as dangerous: it appealed to the wrong crowds.
They changed the popular conception of politics: political issues were defined as moral issues which touched the identity of groups and individuals.
Political parties profited from this and were able to capitalise upon this new conception of politics.

 WHITE PAPER ON KASHMIR -------Chapter 3 Disinformation Compaign---POLITICAL ALIENATION
Alienation, understood as the rupture of the Muslims from their political and social environment, it was alleged, had set in, due to the psychological reaction to their exclusion from the political processes in the State and their withdrawl from all forms of political participation.
It was alleged that partial application of the secular equality, envisaged by the Constitution of India, to the State, impaired the religious political and economic precedence of the Muslims, which formed the basis of its autonomy.
The successive State Governments were blamed of having organised the decision-making units in the State in a manner that were dominated by the Hindus, who converted the decision-making processes of the State Government to the disadvantage of the Muslims.

The chief spokesman for the Commission, Reijo Kemppinen, said that although the EU had banned Hamas' military organisation, it would not act against the group's political wing.
His statement came two days after President Bush strongly urged the Europeans to stamp out all fund-raising for Hamas and seize its assets, saying the group was an obstacle to peace in the Middle East.
But Mr Kemppinen said the political wing of the organisation was legitimate as it carried out social welfare activities such as running clinics and schools.

 Critique of Political Organisation: Introduction to riff-raff #7
The question (and critique) of political organisation is closely connected to the question of class consciousness and its genesis.
From this critique we may abstract “the fundamental categories of political theory, of the theory of classes and of the theory of the state” (Marramao, “The Theory of Crisis and the Problem of Constitution”), and with this as its base—a theory of organisation.
The red thread throughout the essay is the relation between theory and practice, “that is, the organisational implications of communist theory”.
