Demystifying economics: a scoping of economic education resources

This annotated bibliography is an attempt to identify and catalogue some of the rich economic literacy resources that have been developed and used by NGOs, trade unions, social movements and others. In addition to understanding the details of policy, economic literacy must also equip citizens to probe and think critically about the core ideas, worldview and policy agendas behind economic policies.

Making change happen: advocacy and citizen participation

This is the report from a meeting of 49 people engaged in advocacy and citizen participation efforts in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, North America and Europe. The purpose of the meeting was to bring together activists, researchers, trainers and other practitioners to discuss the challenges and successes of citizen-centred advocacy in different country contexts. This report aims to capture key lessons and recommendations to help donors and international NGOs refine their support strategies for training and action in participatory advocacy.
