Situation: Political conditions of the world have changed
In the past, keeping information centralized & secret was smart. Now the opposite is true.
Political environments are becoming transparent. Those who adapt first will have an advantage.
Closed political information platforms are inadequate
Influential actors are isolated from one another and knowledge is fragmented.
Open inclusive political platforms work better for multi-party agreements
With an adequate process, publicly shared information leads to common understanding.
Our platform: Sovereignty First builds political deal landscapes
With local, regional, and international actors influential in the life of the country
Sovereignty First’s political deal landscapes reveal:
National economic, political, social, & cultural capacity to support different initiatives
Partnership opportunities & risks—who can be trusted as a partner & in what way
1st deal landscape:
- List of local, regional, and international actors influential in the life of the country
- Measures of the amount of perceptual confusion about the situation
2nd deal landscape:
- Areas of agreement about the situation
- Easiest opportunities for negotiations
3rd deal landscape:
- Points on which prime actors are willing to change their assessments based on feedback from others
- Easiest opportunities for dialogue to search for common ground
4th deal landscape:
- Entrenched positions that have not shifted in response to new information
- Ways to increase the flexibility of one’s own organization and partner organizations
- Ways to engage more effectively with other prime actors holding seemingly intractable positions
Countries build sovereignty and stability one agreement at a time.
Sovereignty First makes it possible to craft multi-party agreements that increase the power, choice, and freedom of local, regional, and international coalitions, organizations, and governments.
Sovereignty First generates an open platform to reveal dimensions of development opportunities and the actors who can influence them.
Our methods are trauma-informed, on the ground, and engage participants face-to-face.
With our deal landscapes, any actor can see pathways to help themselves and their country.
