Why activists fail | Robert Burrowes

Robert Burrowes writes: “The foundation of any sound strategy… is a thorough understanding of the conflict. This means, most importantly, having a clear sense of the ‘big picture’… not just the detail of the issue on which you focus. Fundamentally, this requires an astute understanding of the global power structure. If we do not understand how power works in society, particularly structurally, including in relation to the conflict we seek to resolve, then we cannot plan and implement a strategy that will work.”
