Applied Political Economy Analysis for Human Rights Programs
Analysis, How-to, Tools and Templates
Pact’s handbook provides practical guidance to practitioners and campaigners on how to integrate Applied Political Economy Analysis (APEA) into their activities. It provides a succinct description of APEA and discusses how the methodology supports human rights programs. It also outlines clear but flexible steps for carrying out APEA studies, as well as embedding ongoing APEA into the management of programs and campaigns. The document also includes a number of annexes that provide practical resources for carrying out APEA and related contextual analysis.
Pact uses APEA to deliberately map the political and economic incentives that drive key actors within a given geography, sector or system to inform contextually driven programming.
