155 NINE Insiders within? The third sector and policy analysis in Israel Hagai Katz This chapter takes a specific realm of policy making in Israel – the third sector – to demonstrate the intricate relations and the ambivalence between ‘insiders’ and ‘outsiders’ in policy analysis processes in Israel. It examines the third sector as both a target of and a participant in policy analysis processes. The third sector in Israel was shown in international studies to be one the largest in the world within its national context (Salamon et al, 1999). Moreover, it
the likelihood that policy actors get the sort of policies they wish for, little is known about the extent to which actors’ choices of advocacy strategies are interdependent. For the purposes of this research, we define an advocacy strategy as an activity used by a policy actor to influence a policy design or choice. Interest groups scholarship has restricted its focus to the study of how interest groups (such as NGOs and businesses) use two distinct types of advocacy strategies: an insider strategy and an outsider strategy ( Grant, 1978 ; Gais and Walker, 1991
119 6 Insider-outsider reflections on terrorism research in the coastal region of Kenya Fathima Azmiya Badurdeen Introduction Navigating one’s positionality while researching on terrorism can be particularly challenging when working in regions vulnerable to religiously motivated ideologies on violent extremism, where suspicion and access present barriers to engaging with the participants (Dolnik, 2013; Nielsen, 2014). Even if the researcher shares the same religion as that of the participants and is acquainted with the culture wherein relational aspects

From the local to the global, the governance of illegal drug use is becoming increasingly fragmented. In some contexts, prohibitive regimes are being transformed or replaced, whilst in others there are renewed commitments to criminalised control. But what gives rise to convergence and divergence in processes of policy making, both across different countries as well as within them?
Based upon empirical qualitative research with ‘elite’ insiders, David Brewster explores a diverse range of cannabis policy approaches across the globe. His original analysis reveals the factors which facilitate or hinder punitive or liberalising tendencies in cannabis policy processes, concluding with future directions for policy making and comparative criminology.

Seen through the eyes of parents, mainly mothers, “City survivors” tells the eye-opening story of what it is like to bring up children in troubled city neighbourhoods. The book provides a unique insider view on the impact of neighbourhood conditions on family life and explores the prospects for families from the point of view of equality, integration, schools, work, community, regeneration and public services.
“City Survivors” is based on yearly visits over seven years to two hundred families living in four highly disadvantaged city neighbourhoods, two in East London and two in Northern inner and outer city areas. Twenty four families, six from each area, explain over time from the inside, how neighbourhoods in and of themselves directly affect family survival. These twenty four stories convey powerful messages from parents about the problems they want tackled, and the things that would help them. The main themes explored in the book are neighbourhood, community, family, parenting, incomes and locals, the need for civic intervention.
The book offers original and in-depth, qualitative evidence in a readable and accessible form that will be invaluable to policy-makers, practitioners, university students, academics and general readers interested in the future of families in cities.
