Never sat down to understand my narrow interest in power dynamics; that is, there are many aspects of power that don’t hold my interest at all. Yet some always do. So with a comprehensive detailed outline of Global Power Dynamics, I printed out a hard copy and just read it from bottom to top, and while I was able to identify SOME individual areas of interest, nearly the entire section of “Theories of power and their applications” seems to leap out at me as ‘most interesting by far’. So I asked it to go a level deeper and from this, I’ll carve out whatever my niche interests may end up being. 1.3 Theories of power and their applications 1.3.1 Types of power (e.g. economic, political, social) 1.3.1.1 Economic power (e.g. control over resources, wealth) 1.3.1.2 Political power (e.g. decision-making authority, legitimacy) 1.3.1.3 Social power (e.g. influence over others, social status) 1.3.2 Theories of power 1.3.2.1 Power-over (e.g. domination, coercion, control) 1.3.2.1.1 Examples of power-over in action (e.g. colonialism, patriarchy) 1.3.2.2 Power-to (e.g. agency, capability, potential) 1.3.2.2.1 Examples of power-to in action (e.g. grassroots organizing, self-determination) 1.3.2.3 Power-with (e.g. solidarity, collaboration, mutuality) 1.3.2.3.1 Examples of power-with in action (e.g. collective bargaining, social movements) 1.3.3 Applications of power theories in different contexts 1.3.3.1 Organizational contexts (e.g. businesses, governments, NGOs) 1.3.3.1.1 How power dynamics play out in different types of organizations 1.3.3.2 Personal relationships (e.g. family, friends, romantic partners) 1.3.3.2.1 How power dynamics manifest in personal relationships 1.3.3.3 Societal and global contexts (e.g. social movements, international relations) 1.3.3.3.1 How power dynamics influence societal and global issues and events
