Thank you for taking part in this survey, which takes between10-20 minutes to complete.

We are looking at lessons from applying a tool for analysis called the power cube ( In particular we would like to know how it has been used in practice, the ways it has been adapted and what learnings it has generated.

If you have used, adapted or learned from the power cube and have ideas to share, we would like to hear from you. Please fill-in the 8 questions below and share your email address at the end so that we can contact you to follow-up.

This survey will be used to generate case studies that might be included in an article in a new publication on Power and Empowerment for Social Change. This new publication will offer a collection of key concepts, methods, tools and resources for understanding power and for supporting processes of empowerment and social change.

Although we cannot guarantee that all case studies will be featured in the book, this could be a great opportunity to showcase your work, and for us to learn from your feedback.

If you have questions please contact John Gaventa at or Fiammetta Wegner at and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
