MSI Integrity conducts periodic evaluations of selected MSIs and produces evaluation reports for public use. These reports include contextual and substantive analysis of MSI Evaluation Tool findings and recommendations for the evaluated MSIs. We conduct these evaluations in an effort to: (i) continually improve the quality, rigor, and practical value of our evaluation criteria and methodology; (ii) consistently demonstrate the usefulness of comprehensive assessment for understanding MSIs from a human rights perspective; and (iii) regularly publish information regarding the substantive findings and analysis of evaluated MSIs to enhance understanding about MSIs with respect to their field-level impact and value from a human rights perspective.

Reports may focus on a single MSI or may compare MSI Evaluation Tool assessments of multiple initiatives. Generally, reports involve the following three parts:

  • An overview report that summarizes and analyzes the substantive findings of all the individual MSI evaluations conducted during the report period. This report will serve as an executive summary to the publication of the individual MSI Evaluation Reports, and will present general findings and analyze trends observed across the evaluated MSIs.
  • A comprehensive account of each individual MSI evaluated as exemplified by the working draft reports from the pilot MSI evaluations. These reports present the substantive findings from the MSI Evaluation Tool assessment and provide contextual and normative analysis as well as recommendations for the MSI to improve capacity to protect and promote human rights. This account is organized following the section categories of the MSI Evaluation Tool.
  • A summary account of each individual MSI evaluated that highlights the results in each section of the Evaluation Tool. This report identifies significant issues, good or innovative practices discovered in the assessment, as well as key recommendations for the MSI.

Pilot MSI Evaluations are available here.
