Research and Advocacy
Advocacy interventions are aimed at changing policies of the government and market in favour of the deprived sections of the society, particularly tribals. Sampark cooperates in implementing people friendly policies in an effective manner. At the same time, it non-violently opposes the policies and practices that are against the interests of the people. It seeks to change such policies in favour of the poor and the deprived.
During recent years Sampark has done the following advocacy interventions:
- Research on Digital Divide
- Advocacy of Lok Jagriti Manch
- Campaign on Freedom from Debt
- Awareness about GM Seeds
- Demand for Implementation of Government Schemes
- Community-based Water System
- Campaign on Right to Food
- Voter Awareness Campaign
While carrying out advocacy, Sampark uses standard advocacy tools: representation to authorities, padyatras, processions, dharnas (sit-ins), media coverage, negotiations with authorities and politicians, etc.
