Advocacy evaluation – top resources
Today I spoke to the students of the Executive Certificate of Advocacy in International Affairs at the Graduate Institute of Geneva on advocacy evaluation. I promised the students to list the top resources I’d recommend on advocacy evaluation, here they are:
“A guide to monitoring and evaluating policy influence (pdf)” of the UK-based Overseas Development Institute describes the different approaches to evaluating policy influence.
“Advocacy Impact Evaluation” (pdf) by Michael Q. Patton – an interesting case study on influencing the US Supreme Court.
“Lessons in Evaluating Communication Campaigns: Five Case Studies” from the Harvard Family Research Project looks at evaluating advocacy campaigns ranging from gun safety to emmissions (ozone) reduction.
