Mission Statement

The Advocacy and Policy Change Topical Interest Group exists to provide a forum for communication, learning, mutual support and professional development for those interested in evaluating broadly defined advocacy and policy activities.  The Advocacy and Policy Change Topical Interest Group (TIG) within the American Evaluation Association (AEA) was launched in 2007 and is now the second-fastest-growing TIG, with over 800 members and a steady growth in the presentations allotted to it at AEA’s annual meetings.

Some of our many areas of interest include:

  • Methodology for evaluating within the complexities of the policy environment
  • Inter-governmental, national (for all countries), state and local advocacy and policy activities
  • Specific approaches for discrete advocacy activities (community organizing, media outreach, coalition and network building, lobbying, legal action, research, etc.)
