Advocacy campaigns and policy influence

February 22, 2011 at 8:52 am 2 comments

Influencing policy is often an aim of many advocacy campaigns – the notion of trying to bring about change in the policy of governments, the private sector or even international organisations (e.g. UN).   Here are two interesting publications in this area:

Pathways for change: 6 Theories about How Policy Change Happens (pdf)”  of the US-based  Organization Research Services describes different theories as to how policy change can occur – interesting reading for those trying to influence policy.

A guide to monitoring and evaluating policy influence (pdf)” of the UK-based Overseas Development Institute describes the different approaches to evaluating policy influence – i.e. how you can evaluate your efforts to influence policy.

Both publications are worth a read if you are interested in policy influence and advocacy campaigning.
