Responsible Advocacy

We commit to ensuring that our advocacy is consistent with our mission, grounded in our work, based on evidence and advances defined public interests. This will require:
  • Explicit ethical policies that guide our choices of advocacy strategy (targets and
    claims) including responsible use of people’s images and stories;
  • A clear and published process at organisational level for adopting public policy
    positions (including for partners where appropriate);
  • Ensuring that assertions are based on evidence and meaningful stakeholder
    engagement wherever possible;
  • Being responsible in our public criticism, ensuring it amounts to fair public
    comment and giving a right of reply.
