Pax Christi International launches an advocacy guide with examples of successful work by its representatives, members and partners from around the world
7/1/19 - Globally, the Pax Christi network is striving for peace, justice and human rights through advocacy activities from the local level to national and international levels. It has an important added value, as it brings grassroots voices to the public debate and policy levels, uses nonviolent approaches and gives Catholic-inspired views.
The International Secretariat of Pax Christi International has made a new advocacy guide aimed at strengthening the advocacy work of our peace network through explaining what advocacy is, sharing examples of effective advocacy work by our representatives, members and partners, as well as tips for strategizing. In the annexes, information can be found on how to make a statement, build a social media campaign and prepare a lobby meeting with decision-makers.
This advocacy guide is intended for all—whether you are new to this work or deeply experienced in advocacy and are looking for some good examples. We highlight that the best and most effective way to carry out advocacy work will depend on specific contexts.
