Understanding Advocacy in Context

Understanding Advocacy in Context

(p.26) 2 Understanding Advocacy in Context
Between Movement and Establishment
Stanford University Press

Youth advocacy and organizing work happens in a particular time and place, within a specific organizational field, and in particular political and social environments. This chapter examines the ways in which the contexts within which organizations work shape what they are able to do on a local level. It considers three contexts that affect youth advocacy on the ground and describes the approach to understanding how the structure and strategies of these organizations work between movement and establishment to create improved opportunities for youth in urban areas. The discussion draws variously on organizational, social movement, and political science theories.

Keywords:   youth advocacy, urban areas, social environment, social movement, political science
