Join us September 27th for an exciting learning event to explore keys to successful country-level advocacy and campaigning on inequality and fiscal justice. How do campaigners successfully engage citizens on seemingly technical, inaccessible issues that contribute to inequality like tax justice, public financial management and revenue transparency?
In Peru, Oxfam has undertaken a number of successful initiatives to engage the public on such topics to highlight the country’s glaring levels of inequality. Based on insight from these past efforts, Oxfam Peru has begun developing an influencing model to approach issues of inequality and fiscal reform with a comprehensive strategy.
If, as in Peru, campaigners do succeed in eliciting public engagement on an issue, which tools can be used to then ensure adequate reaction from government in responding to inequality and fiscal injustice and implementing meaningful change?
How do we perfect the theory of change behind fiscal justice advocacy and campaigning to get closer to a winning formula?
We will explore these questions with panelists Alejandra Alayza, Policy & Campaigners Manager for Oxfam in Peru and Michael Jarvis, Executive Director of the Transparency & Accountability Initiative.
Event jointly sponsored by Oxfam America and Transparency & Accountability Initiative
