January 27, 2012 at 4:41 pm 6 comments

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:

Practical Guide to Advocacy Evaluation from Innovation Network (pdf)>>

Guide on measuring advocacy and policy (pdf) from the Annie E. Casey Foundation

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.
