The following are IPAC's publications, in collaboration with SDS, India on Lobbying and Policy Advocacy.
1. Non- Profit Lobbying: A beginner's guide
To make people aware of the unavoidable significance of lobbying, it is imperative for an organization like IPAC or a network such as Lobby Works International to be involved in professional lobbying to help its fellow lobbyists, partners/clients, and donors in understanding the concept and need for lobbying. The best way to attain this would be by placing a Lobby Guide in action. Such an attempt, through this guide has been made by IPAC for and on behalf of Lobby Works International.
The lobby guide is the first step towards the understanding and achievement of a vast concept of lobbying. In today's era of accountability, where the chosen representatives are answerable and accountable to all forms of government, where each has a right to participate and know the ways of governance, and development is an inalienable right, the need for lobbying is prima facie a step forward for achievement of the goals targeted by civil society organizations.
2. Parliamentary Procedures and Non- Profit lobbying
There is a need to influence public policies arises from the fact that in a democratic setup, the decision making is done by the government on behalf of the people of the country. The reason for accountability and governance compels a set-up to work for a cause, issue, or a reason. Policy engagement with the parliamentarians and legislatures can be done in various ways as indicated in this document. This booklet, a compilation of information from various sources, including the website of Indian Parliament, publications of IPAC and field experience, is an attempt to present the process involved in decision making in India, and aim to familiarize the reader with the various avenues to approach the public sector. It is hoped that it helps social justice leaders, who very often have to engage with decision makers, in being more strategic and effective.
3. Distress Migration in India: Towards Developing a Framework for Safe Migration
IPAC has worked on a discussion paper on migration with covers information on the nature and extent of migration in India, its causes and consequences in terms of basic human rights of migrants. The paper also suggests some strategies to address the issue. Keeping in view the analyses by different social scientists and policy makers and keeping in view its own experiences, the organization recommended for a national policy on migration, networking and mobilization, social security coverage of migrant laborers, and awareness generation and skill building programs.
