What is MSTC?

Making Sense of Turbulent Contexts

Download Publication

At its simplest, a “Making Sense of Turbulent Contexts” (MSTC) analysis is an intense, participatory three-and-a half day workshop involving:

  • up to 25 participants
  • four facilitators
  • one full-time documenter

Together local actors analyse a national or regional conflict at the macro-level. The tool generates practical recommendations for aid actors, especially in humanitarian, development, and advocacy sectors.
