Project: Active Citizens and Accountable Local Government

Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

Compromise is often a necessary element of successful advocacy processes. Imperfect legislation for pedestrian’s rights can be better than no legislation, particularly when amendments can be introduced later. The original project
proposal had included the development and drafting of legislation. However, when the
Ministry of the Interior (MoI) launched a bill, IP determined that it would make more sense
to engage in and influence the MOI’s proposal rather than seek to push their own initiative.
IP engaged in a dual-pronged stategy during the advocacy process that included both
constructive and frequent dialogue with the MoI on the content of the law as well as civic
activism to pressure parliament on approval of the legislation.

Project: Citizen Journalists for Free and Fair Elections in Georgia
Evaluation Date: April 2014
Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

It is important to conduct systematic analysis and to synthesize information that can be used by advocacy and electoral observation groups to improve the electoral process. In this project no links were made with advocacy or other groups in Georgia who could use the project’s information to promote electoral reform. Some of its efforts also worked in parallel to other efforts done in the sector.
