Other approaches to levels

As with the spaces of power, there are many other levels of power, if you understand them across a vertical continuum from the very micro and personal to the more macro and global. While we have focused on these three levels, the spectrum can include family, households, the individual person, organisations, regions, provinces.  It can correspond with a country’s administrative structures.  It can also reflect places that people experience as being divided along linguistic, ethnic, racial, or political/electoral divides. For other examples of how to view the levels of power go to Academic Debates on Levels, or read about the eight levels of governance in Colombia and about private and intimate levels of power, in section on gender perspectives on power.
