Theories that related to consociational are consociationalism theory and consociational theory.Goals of consociationalism are to focus on the stability of the government, the survival of power-sharing arrangement, the survival of democracy and avoid violence.The principal argument in theory of consociational is divided territory, region or state, with a history of ethnic conflict, religious or linguistic divides people, it is an effective, cost-efficient and sometimes optimally governed by consociational principles.

The objective of this analysis is to distinguish between attributes that defined in consociational concept and unrelated structures, and to determine the internal structure through break to the more easily elements.The findings of the concept analysis found that consociational and consensus democracy is fit perfectly with each other.In highly segmented society, consociationalism become caregiver to community segmented problems.
