Susan Banki of the University of Sydney explains why visually mapping the relationships that surround a human rights issue is important in identifying effective strategies, and she shares the steps involved in this activity.

This section of the Strategy Toolkit helps you to "Know the Terrain" (the context). This overview provides an examination of the human relationship “terrain” – the people, groups, organizations and institutions involved in a human rights issue - both those seeking to make change (allies) and those opposed to change (opponents).
This section of the Strategy Toolkit assists you to “Know Yourself” through the process of envisioning a future without the identified problem or issue. It is essential to have a vision of what you want to accomplish. If you do not know where you want to go, it is difficult to get there and hard to know if you have arrived.
