About the exercise
- Group exercise
- Time required : 2 h 45 minutes
- Target audience : Best suited to civil society organisations, human rights defenders and faith leaders.
- To enable participants to deepen their understanding of a specific freedom of religion or belief (FORB) violation in their context by applying key concepts from the theory of non-violent struggle.
- To help participants develop strategic action planning skills.
A group work exercise in which participants critically analyse sources of power and ‘pillars’ of power that perpetuate a specific violation of FORB in their context and strategize ways of tackling the violation by weakening those pillars of power.
Prior to this exercise, participants should have identified some specific FORB problems they wish to analyse/develop action plans for, for example using ‘The problem tree’, or the ‘What’s the problem’.
