About the Author

Jeffrey Unsickeris Professor and Chair, Sustainable Development, Intercultural Service, Leadership, and Management, at the SIT Graduate Institute in Brattleboro, Vermont, USA.


"Unsicker (sustainable development, the SIT Graduate Institute, Vermont) has been involved in policy advocacy campaigns for 40 years. He collects eight successful cases of citizens and coalitions practicing policy advocacy around the world, from Ghana to Main Street, USA, which will inspire advocates and students with lessons in strategy, communication, capacity building, and evaluation."
"Jeff Unsicker s classes and mentorship at SIT Graduate Institute were fundamental to my development as an advocate. That he has made his teachings available to people beyond campus in the form of this book - packed full with case studies and the practical advice people need to hit the ground running is an invaluable addition to the policy advocacy field at a time when we need strategic leadership more than ever."
"Jeff Unsicker's "Confronting Power" provides new knowledge for policy advocacy practitioners so that they understand the contributions they make as advocates. Unsicker provides advocates with the tools to reflect on the lessons to be gleaned from their rich experience. As a co-author of three books on policy and social movement advocacy, I found myself cheering Unsicker's writing and the stories he, his students and colleagues uncovered. Students of policy advocacy can learn from the case studies which demystify advocacy as they respect the advocates' serious work. Academic discipline does not stand in the way of making the advocates' work come alive. We come away valuing the public work of policy advocacy and wanting to engage in it."
