Power Analysis: A Practical Guide

This guide, published by Sida, offers practical advice and resources for those wanting to bring an understanding of power into development cooperation, whether in the stages of analysing context, developing strategy, designing a programme, selecting partners or delivering results. Supporting the process of changing unjust or discriminatory power relations is an essential part of realising key human rights principles of participation, accountability, transparency and non-discrimination. This guide responds to the Swedish Government Policy on Democratic Development and Human Rights “Change for Freedom” (2010–2014)1, which recommends that power be analysed as part of context specific poverty analysis.
