The Public Affairs Guide to Wales is the essential handbook for organisations seeking to effectively and ethically lobby the Welsh Government and the National Assembly (Senedd), and is packed with invaluable advice on devising public affairs strategies and campaigns that achieve success on a limited budget. Daran Hill's step-by-step guide - for private, public and third sector organisations - expertly strips away the mysteries and misconceptions of engaging with the Welsh Government, Opposition parties, as well as with individual AMs, committees and the civil service, and will empower campaigners to maximise their influence and to ensure their voice is heard by comprehensively explaining how to: develop an effective public affairs strategy; identify the correct policy and legislative context via effective monitoring and by developing good relations with key policy makers; fully engage with the legislative processes in the Senedd; influence Senedd committees and cross-party groups; create, organise and undertake a public affairs programme most appropriate for your organisation including hosting parliamentary receptions, attending party conferences, working with the media and joint-working with partner organisations.
The Life and Death of ACT UP/LA explores the history of the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power, Los Angeles, part of the militant anti-AIDS movement of the 1980s and 1990s. ACT UP/LA battled government, medical, and institutional neglect of the AIDS epidemic, engaging in multi-targeted protest in Los Angeles and nationally. The book shows how appealing the direct action anti-AIDS activism was for people across the United States; as well as arguing the need to understand how the politics of place affect organizing, and how the particular features of the Los Angeles cityscape shaped possibilities for activists. A feminist lens is used, seeing social inequalities as mutually reinforcing and interdependent, to examine the interaction of activists and the outcomes of their actions. Their struggle against AIDS and homophobia, and to have a voice in their healthcare, presaged the progressive, multi-issue, anti-corporate, confrontational organizing of the late twentieth century, and deserves to be part of that history.
Interest Group Politics has been and will continue to be the leading (essentially only) comprehensive collection of articles on interest groups and lobbying. The authors provide a theoretical overview of the subject, and address groups as organizations, as coalitions, as electoral actors, and as lobbying entities, broadly conceived. No other text or reader provides the breath of coverage or the strength of detail in exploring the world of organized interests, from their internal structure to their electoral politics to their lobbying activities. Fresh studies examine how lobbying has evolved in the Trump era, as well as offer classic analyses of how groups organize and seek to affect public policy.
