Now that a combination of factors which cause the human rights issue have been mapped out the next step is to identify all the relevant actors. These are the people that are directly aﬀected and the actors that are related to the diﬀerent causes of the issue. During this step the map created during Step 3 will be completed by adding actors to the Spheres of Inﬂuence Diagram.
Start with a concrete relationship that best represents the issue; in many cases this is a health worker and a patient. These represent the person(s) directly aﬀected and the actors that are immediately involved in the issue. Next, draw in all the relevant actors that are connected to the diﬀerent causes written into the Spheres of Inﬂuence Diagram. The completed map should include all actors that inﬂuence or have an interest in the central issue.
