Working With Power In Multi-Stakeholder Processes
Power is complex, everywhere, dynamic and at play within every relationship. It is multidimensional, changing according to context, circumstances and interests. Its expressions and forms can range from domination and resistance to collaboration and transformation. In any system, certain actors have privileged access and ability to shape how the system functions and how it produces outcomes. These actors will benefit more than others from resource flows in the system, creating a disincentive to change it.
