  • Advocacy Organizations and Collective Action | Department of Political Science | University of Washington
    and Aseem Prakash eds Advocacy Organizations and Collective Action Cambridge UK Cambridge University Press 2010 Advocacy organizations are viewed as actors motivated primarily by principled beliefs This volume outlines a new agenda for the study of advocacy organizations proposing a model of NGOs as collective actors that seek to fulfill normative concerns and instrumental incentives face collective action problems and compete as well as collaborate with other advocacy actors The firm analogy is a useful way of studying advocacy actors because individuals via advocacy NGOs make choices which are analytically similar to those that shareholders make in the context of firms The authors view advocacy NGOs as special types of firms that make strategic choices in policy markets which along with creating public goods support organizational survival visibility and growth Advocacy NGOs strategy can therefore be understood as a response to opportunities to supply distinct advocacy products to well defined constituencies as well as a response to normative or principled concerns People Involved Aseem Prakash Status of Research or Work Completed published Research Type Publications Books Related Fields Interest Groups Social Movements Share Print PDF Related Fields Interest Groups Social Movements Support Political Science Stay Connected Newsletter Sign up News Feed Alumni Update Advising Blog Main Menu People Faculty Adjuncts Staff Graduate Students Alumni Distinguished Alumni Alumni Notes Where are you Hire a UW Ph D Programs Courses Undergraduate What is Political Science Advising Major Minor Honors Internships Research Independent Study Scholarships Awards Transfer Students Writing Center Organizations for Students Careers Graduate School Graduate Program Overview Admissions Courses Funding Requirements Office Policies Student Guide Placement Record Resources Visiting Students Courses Course Catalog Time Schedule Projected Courses Certificate in Advanced Political Studies and Research Courses International Security and Political Economy Option Courses VLPA Courses NW Courses Tips for Getting into Closed
