Ask "Whose interests are being served in this situation?" Then prompt with "How is this happening?" and "What are the implications?" Also ask "Whose interests are not being served in this situation?" and follow up with the same prompts.

These questions enable group members to explore and understand whose interests are at the heart of a discussion and how power influences perspectives, decision-making and outcomes.

See Making Questions Work: Chapter 6, “Questions for Thinking Critically”, p 144.
