This chapter takes an international perspective on advocacy. It focuses on the question of how international advocacy projects can look like and what makes them successful. In doing so, we turn to the practical and applied sides of advocacy. Advocacy activities aim at taking the voice of patients to inform, protect, and support them. In the first part of this chapter, we will present successful cases of advocacy activities in neurology. In the second part, we will reflect on personal experiences where advocacy activities were or should have been implemented. Reflecting on these cases, we present some lessons learnt that advocates may want to consider when they plan and implement international advocacy activities.
