Media Campaigns for Advocacy
In today’s world different and divergent developments are taking place. On the one hand, we see a world in which progress is being made: less people live in poverty, education rates have gone up and technological developments have made it easier to connect and access information. At the same time, we see a world that has become more closed, literally and figuratively: more conservative voices and governments, increased suppression of fundamental rights such as freedom of expression, access to information and participation in public affairs are being suppressed. Space for civil society is shrinking and many people have difficulties in exercising their right and claiming their space. To respond to this increasing repression and violation of rights, there is a need to step up and invest in advocacy work.
If you are driven to create change, it is essential that you work on the legal context. In this 3 week course you will learn the fundamentals of building effective advocacy campaigns, including media and campaigning skills, advocacy partnerships and processes and amplification through the media.
