Die folgenden Tipps kommen von EDRi (PDF), wir nehmen diese als Anleitung, wenn wir mit „policy makers“ und Politikern in Kontakt treten, diskutieren und entscheiden:

  1. Be early. Being involved in a dossier early shows knowledge of the dossier and willingness to be engaged. Policy-makers appreciate this greatly.
  2. Be reliable. Policy-makers have limited time and need to be credible vis-à-vis their colleagues. Understandably, they listen to people more who have been more reliable – and tend not to forget mistakes.
  3. Be honest. Policy-makers eventually forgive - but not forget - mistakes. They neither forgive nor forget being misled.
  4. Be understanding. Know and make allowances for the practical and political options available to a policy-maker. Politics is the art of the possible. Being asked for what you can’t deliver is unsurprisingly not flattering for a policy-maker.
  5. Be nice! However important a particular dossier is, being aggressive will never be productive and will limit your options the next time you need to communicate with that policy-maker.
  6. Be thorough. Policy-makers appreciate expert and complete analysis.
  7. Be brief.
  8. Be consistent. You need to ensure that your analysis and policy are clear and consistent. It is also important to liaise with other, similar, civil society groups to ensure that the message is not diluted by confusion.
  9. Be personal. Policy-makers get zillions of communications from interest groups. Non-personalised messages have less impact.
  10. Be a bridge builder. Alliances are crucial, even with individuals, groups and industries that you compete with on other issues.
