Despite the prominence of civil society advocacy on education since the 1990s, there is limited consensus about the nature of its role in shaping national policies in the global South.
Changes in civic space in the past decade are likely to have altered the terms of civil society engagement in education policy.
This Accountability Brief, based on a literature review, takes stock of the evidence about how past civic action has shaped education policy, to understand the possible impacts on policymaking should space for civil society advocacy on education be restricted in the future.
