Guide for Trainers: Advocacy and Policy Influencing

In this Guide you will find separate course outlines for each course but you are free to make a different mix of modules.

The five day course enables you to learn the concepts behind Advocacy and Policy Influencing, gain insights in the processes that take place, analyse your context with beneficiaries and other stakeholders, and analyse the political processes of the subject you are working on.

With this knowledge you will be able to plan your own Advocacy and Policy Influencing strategies towards different political targets and you will have practised some skills in negotiation and lobby conversations.

This Guide is based on the ‘Advocacy and Policy Influencing for Social Change’ Manual from TACSO (2011) with which you can conduct the full training course of five days.
