Confronting Power

The Practice of Policy Advocacy

eBook - 2013
Rate this:
Confronting Power provides an academically rigorous, yet practical and comprehensive framework and sets of concepts for planning, implementing and evaluating policy advocacy. Based on the author's experiences both as teacher and activist, the framework is general enough to be relevant for advocacy in a variety of sectors such as poverty alleviation, human rights and the environment, in different national and cultural contexts, and at levels ranging from influencing a town council to transnational institutions such as the World Bank. The book grounds the concepts via a series of case studies, which themselves illustrate a range of different advocacy campaigns in both the Global South and the United States. Designed to be both a textbook and a guide for practical action, Confronting Power should become an essential component of every teacher and social advocate's tool kit.
