Reflections on the status of citizen advocacy

Written Material
Download

This Canadian paper is based on a series of presentations given at events where the development of citizen advocacy was critically examined. It provides an historical reflection and an overview of the major theoretical determinants of advocate-protege pairing. Chapters are included on why we need advocates who are volunteers rather than paid, and on mistaken views of normalised relationships. It provides a citizen advocacy program quality inventory chart which is helpful in avoiding common misuses of citizen advocacy. Keyword: Advocacy
