Encouraged by our partners and many positive responses, we have made our policy advocacy manual available online in a more accessible, searchable and modular format. In fact, each online page represents a subsection of the original publication. In addition, we have tried to adapt the design features from the publication to the online environment in order to make it as accessible as possible. We would like to thank the Think Tank Fund, Open Society Foundations for supporting this initiative. Hope you enjoy!

Commentary on "Making research evidence matter: a guide to policy advocacy in transition countries":
“this book is set to become an essential part of the advocates' toolkit.”
Professor Andrew Russell, Chair of Politics, University of Manchester, UK
"A very useful manual that allows policy researchers to situate their projects within a wider advocacy framework and to think about involving stakeholders from the start. Clear, concise, and to the point, this guide is great for newcomers to the policy research field and established experts alike."
Programme managers from German Council on Foreign Relations, TRAIN programme
"I'll use this over and over and over and over. And then share with others."
Workshop participant (Internews, Washington DC March 2013)
