1) Margaret Keck and Kathryn Sikkink. (1998). Activists Beyond Borders: Advocacy Networks in International Politics. Cornell Univ. Press. Chapters 1, 2, and 6, and choose one from the case study chapters 3-5.
All *reading memos* should focus on interacting at least one of the book’s concepts or claims about TANs with your case study chapter in preparation for the in-class presentation.
Chapter 3: Human Rights Advocacy Networks in Latin America (Jenna, Esther)
Chapter 4: Environmental Advocacy Networks (Paulette, Lucy)
Chapter 5: Transnational Networks on Violence Against Women (Margot, Grace, Rachel)
Each group will have 15 minutes to present some features of their case and lead a discussion. Please note that this will not allow a full presentation of the history/ dynamics of each case. Presentations/ discussions should aim to highlight the ways that the concepts around Transnational Advocacy Networks (TANs) feature in their cases. These primarily include: the “Boomerang” pattern, the typology of tactics first listed on page 16, and the discussions around factors relating to effectiveness/ influence found in chapters 1 and 6. Presentations do not have to include all of these, and may also bring up other points as you feel appropriate.
