Dr. Nasser Yassin, Associate Professor of Policy and Planning at the Health Management & Policy Department at the American University of Beirut (AUB), led a research team of 40 scholars who analyzed 100 cases of civil society advocacy for policy changes in 10 Arab countries. He explains why most policy advocacy by NGOs and civil society groups fails, and what are the keys to success (hint: perseverance, research, and collaboration).
