Echoing Marginalised Voices
By: Ferzya Farhan, Program Manager, Center for Policy Innovation and Governance (CIPG)
Center for Innovation Policy and Governance (CIPG), a Voice influencing grantee in Indonesia, believes that sound evidence is a vital component of any kind of empowerment and advocacy. Taking a Step Towards This Advocacy, CIPG Conducted a Capacity Building and Assistance in Pushing for Inclusive Participation.
The organisation’s approach is through capacity- building in research and policy advocacy with six local civil society organisations (CSOs) in the eastern part of Indonesia. These local CSOs are concerned with three rightsholder groups; the age-discriminated (youth/elderly), women facing exploitation, abuse and violence, and indigenous and ethnic minorities.
This book is a compilation of the research done on the problems that these three rightsholder groups face. The problem may seem very local, but that does not make it any lesser of a problems perhaps even bigger as these are things happening in other parts of the world.
