MSI Integrity partners with academic institutions and local, national, and international organizations to explore the impact and value of multi-stakeholder and other voluntary initiatives as human rights tools. We strive for engagement and reflexive consultation with all stakeholders, and encourage any interested potential partner to please contact us.
MSI Integrity is developing a research project identifying and mapping existing MSIs in an open and accessible database. This will be the first public mapping of MSIs operating in business and human rights. This project will be conducted with pro bono support from law firm Miller & Chevalier in Washington, DC, and research support from The Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, at Duke University.
MSI Integrity has initiated a project in partnership with the Social Impact Hub in Sydney, Australia, to research existing impact measurement tools and analyze those tools that may be applicable to assessing the impact of MSIs from a human rights perspective.
The Banyan School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) Advocates at the University of London also provided assistance to conduct research and draft material. The MSI Evaluation Tool was also used by Stanford Law School’s International Human Rights Clinic in Fall 2013.
In 2013, several organizations provided support during our 2013 Global Consultation and Review Process. We thank the following organizations for their support in hosting events around the world: the Netherlands Embassy (Washington, DC), the Center for Business and Human Rights at NYU Stern Business School (New York, NY), the World Bank (Washington, DC), the Center for Applied Legal Studies at Witwatersrand University (Johannesburg, South Africa), La Trobe University School of Business (Melbourne, Australia), the Law, Governance, and Development Initiative at the Australian National University College of Law (Canberra, Australia), the Australian Human Rights Centre at the University of New South Wales Law School (Sydney, Australia), Jindal Global Law School (Sonipat, India), Jorge Tadeo University (Bogota, Colombia), and the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Den Haag, Netherlands).
Interested in partnering with MSI Integrity? Contact us to discuss opportunities to work together. We strive for engagement and reflexive consultation with all stakeholders.
Any MSI or stakeholder is welcome, and encouraged, to contact us to request that research be conducted on a specific issue. This could range from suggesting an aspect of an MSI that is considered particularly innovative and worthy of examination for a “Good Practice” case note, through to requesting MSI Integrity examine an particular aspect of an MSI, or an issue affecting many MSIs, that has proved challenging.
