The Guide combines very practical tools with conceptual discussions that encourage people to contextualize and reflect critically on their own experience.

PATRICIA ARDON, Regional Representative for Central America, CEDPA "A very comprehensive guide book for activists. It helps people who work at different levels understand advocacy in a broader context - dealing with different kinds of power - rather than only policy advocacy.
