The Institute of Social Sciences and Humanities – Skopje is presenting the Manual for data driven advocacy. The Manual aims at fostering the capacities of the civil organizations in the processes of advocating with special focus on data driven advocacy. The model for data driven advocacy incorporates using research tools in problem analysis and visualization tools in the process of advocacy and policy development. The Manual contains explanations and practical examples for all the phases of the advocacy process and could be used as guide for the civil organization in designing and implementing the overall advocacy process that enables protection and promotion of the freedom of expression and participation in the decision making process and policy development.
This Manual is a result of the project Civil Organizations in Promotion and Advocacy of the Freedom of Expression and Association that the Institute of Social Sciences and Humanities – Skopje (ISSHS) is implementing with the support from the CIVICA Mobilitas program. This is a program of Swiss Agency for Cooperation, implemented by NIRAS from Denmark, Macedonian Center for international cooperation (MCIC) from Macedonia and Swedish Institute for Public Administration (SIPU) from Sweden. The goal of the project is to foster the knowledge and capacities of the civil organizations for promotion, protection and advocacy of the freedom of expression and association.
