Advocacy Campaign Award
The Advocacy Campaign Award celebrates strategic and inspiring campaigns that raise public awareness of international development causes.
We aim to contribute to ending poverty worldwide by promoting policies based on equality, human rights and social justice that work for the poor. This award recognises Bond members who are delivering strategic and inspiring campaigns that raise public awareness of international development causes.
The judges selected three projects as the finalists, with the winner announced at the awards ceremony on 26 February.
Traidcraft Exchange - Brexit trade and development
Set up in the aftermath of the EU referendum, this campaign led to a public pledge from the government to guarantee existing levels of market access for developing countries when the UK leaves the EU.
Refugee Rights Europe - Promoting human rights for refugees in Europe
Refugee Rights Europe uses field research to advocate for the human rights of refugees. The research is turned into reports, letters or meetings for parliamentarians, governing bodies, the media or civil society.
Save the Children - Don’t let them off the hook
This campaign led to the Saudia-Arabia led coalition being relisted on the UN’s Children and Armed Conflict list of grave violators, a move which will lead to better protections for Yemeni children.
