Quick guide to power analysis

This 2-page guide developed by Oxfam in 2014 and updated in 2021, provides an overview of key concepts in power analysis and why it is useful, with links to additional resources.

The short resource describes power as "control over others or the ability to carry out one’s will" but points out that "power can also be more subtle". It explains that a power analysis "helps [evaluators] identify and explore the multiple power dimensions that affect a given situation, so as to better understand the different factors that interact to reinforce poverty."
