There is ample recognition of the non-linear nature of policymaking. It is a complex heterogenic process that rejects sequential markers posed by traditional textbooks. Through the constant creation of networks of civil society organisations (CSOs) there is a demand to understand the complexities of policy influences.
Weaving Global Networks: Handbook for Policy Influence offers practical tools and guidelines that might help networks enhance their impact. The guide offers advice on how to use evidence and knowledge gained in regional and global public policies and policymaking processes. It aims to contribute to systemisation through lessons learned by practitioners from networks of CSOs.
The handbook is aimed at global and regional networks, civil society organisations, policymakers and donors that support networks. By drawing on practical and academic sources Centro de Implementación de Políticas Publicas Para La Equidad y el Crecimento (CIPPEC) have produced a book that endeavours to improve knowledge about how these networks of potential policy influences operate.
