about this item

Facilitated advocacy is an approach to development initiatives that enables people situated across varied professional, societal, economic and educational levels to engage with each other in equitable ways to identify changes in policy and practice to improve livelihoods and personal and professional circumstances. This book sets contexts for and defines facilitated advocacy and suggests a role for the approach as the world once again embarks on a set of UN-coordinated development goals. The skills and experience required to facilitate disempowered groups to advocate for the changes that they can identify that they need are outlined in this book and illustrated through a series of case studies co-authored with project participants. These range from standing up for the rights of tribal communities in eastern India and delivering services to the poorest communes in Vietnam to developing an inclusive fisheries policy in Pakistan and building social businesses in rural villages in West Bengal. Furthering research in the field of development studies by being critically reflective of what was tried, succeeded or failed, and then adapted and replicated, this book offers theorists and practitioners an opportunity to examine their own work in contrast to what is presented.
