In January 2023, CAPRS in partnership with the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) and the Asia Displacement Solutions Platform (ADSP), published an Advocacy Toolkit for Diaspora Organisations. This toolkit was borne out of the 2021 Professionsal Development Short Course on Advocacy for the Afghan Diaspora in Europe that was co-organised by CAPRS, DRC and ADSP.
The toolkit recognises the unique role of diaspora communities, organisations, and individuals as vocal and influential advocates for social, economic, and political change in their country of origin, residence and in the international sphere. This toolkit provides practical guidance for diaspora organisations in their advocacy work.
