If societies and organizations are understood as a complex related network, this sort of downward causation is a network cause, which is a nonlinear complex role of the higher level on the lower level and can never be reduced to the sum of the lower level causations.
However, as we know that causal reductionism tries to eliminate all higher level causations and cross level causation, especially to reduce downward causation to the lower level causation.
It is thus clear that there are various inter-level causations forming a complex causal network in the hierarchical structure of a complex system.
Yet, it is hardly sufficient just to assert historical causations.
