The Polarities of Democracy model was developed Dr. Bill Benet as a theoretical framework to help build healthy, sustainable, and just communities. The model is based on a critical theory perspective of pursuing positive social change by overcoming the forces of institutional oppression and violence (environmental, economic, and militaristic) that threaten the survival of the human species. To learn about the origin of this collection, you can view Dr. Benet's 2006 dissertation from the University of Toronto, "The Polarity Management Model of Workplace Democracy"
