our conversation on building strong partnerships & coalitions, this
Join Anouska Teunen of Amnesty International Australia
and the New Tactics online community for a discussion on Building strong partnerships
and coalitions from January
13 to 17, 2014.
In human rights work, collaboration is crucial. One organization will not
have all the resources and skills to support a human rights movement. So
it is necessary to build partnerships and coalitions in order to
achieve your goals and build solidarity. However, there are many barriers
to collaboration. Many human rights organizations have overarching common
aims and visions, but when it comes to working together on campaigns,
agreeing on the specific campaign outcomes can be difficult and
ineffective. This often leads to fewer opportunities for partnerships and
more competition among these groups for campaigning space. Furthermore,
finding partners who have the expertise and skills that you need can be
challenging (especially when you're not sure what you need!).
This online discussion is an opportunity for human rights defenders to
share their experiences, challenges, ideas and advice with one another on
breaking these barriers to collaboration.
