Advocacy in Conflict
de Waal, Alex (ed),
Zed Books (2015).
Conflicts in Africa, Asia and Latin America have become a common focus of advocacy by Western celebrities and NGOs. This provocative volume delves into the realities of these efforts, which have often involved compromising on integrity in pursuit of profile and influence.
Examining the methods used by Western advocates, expert authors, including Mareike Schomerus and Rachel Ibreck, evaluate the successes and failures of past advocacy campaigns and offer constructive criticism of current efforts.
