Building civil society and nurturing democracy have become part of mainstream development discourse. But while some NGOs are taking the lead in this work, others still lack the skills needed to assume new roles in policy advocacy. Advocacy for Social Justice is a direct and interactive response to this growing need. The result of a major three-year collaboration between the Washington-based Advocacy Learning Institute and Oxfam America, this resource is the first comprehensive guide for worldwide advocates for social and economic justice. Intended for practitioners, trainers, teachers and students,it explores the elements of advocacy and offers a toolkit for taking action, comprehensive case studies, and hundreds of resource listings.
