CRITERIA FOR EVALUATING EACH POTENTIAL ADVOCACY ACTION
1. Could advocating this measure do harm?
Is there any way that an international advocacy campaign for this measure or the actual implementation of this measure could exacerbate a conflict, destabilize a situation, put lives at risk, or otherwise do harm?
2. Is there a possibility of success?
What is the likelihood that an international advocacy campaign could successfully influence or pressure decision-makers to implement the measure?
3. If implemented, to what extent would it foster peace?
Would it have a notable impact in helping to resolve the conflict and/or foster a stable peace?
The thinking process behind evaluating the possibility of success is heavily informed by the Harvard Negotiation Project’s approach to “Getting to Yes.”
