Stakeholder Analysis


Tools 2A-C: Stakeholder Analyses  

Defining who should be involved in the activities of the PAR groups and how is a key and complicated process to undertake. An important starting point is to be grounded in histories of work and supporting ongoing relationships. At the same time, we need to be sensitive to the existing relations of power among different actors. This means that we need to involve groups in ways that involve recognition of marginalised voices and perspectives. We recommend carrying out different forms of stakeholder analyses (see Tools 2A-C), which map out the various actors involved in the strategic ‘site of impact’ defined for your group's activities, and the power dynamics between them.
