Publisher's Summary

This "How-To" guide for advocacy at the United Nations helps position NGOs for success in the complex and turbulent international environment of the United Nations. Dr. Karen Judd Smith outlines this work against the backdrop of the three biggest mistakes that undermine so many of today's best ideas and noble work.

When good ideas and urgently needed proposals get shot down or sidelined, not only are the efforts and resources of NGOs wasted, but those who would benefit from these changes remain voiceless. So in simple, easy to follow terms, Dr. Smith shows what can be done to fix these mistakes and get NGO advocacy on track.

For NGOs heading to the UN (or any intergovernmental meeting) to impact global dialog, agendas and policies, their success depends largely upon a small, well-prepared, energetic, empowered and skilled team. NGO advocacy after all, is all about getting governmental representatives, UN staffers and other NGOs to buy-in to their good idea. So their efforts need to be well-timed and exceptionally positioned.
