Mapping MSIs


MSI Integrity, in collaboration with the Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics and with pro bono support from the law firm Miller & Chevalier, has created the MSI Database, a searchable, online overview of the landscape of transnational standard-setting MSIs. This resource includes information on nearly 50 MSIs and maps key information about each initiative’s institutional design characteristics, such as whether an initiative has external complaint mechanisms or monitors members for compliance with its standards. The Database also allows researchers, MSI practitioners and the general public to explore these initiatives by using filters to highlight key institutional design characteristics of each MSI.


The database is complemented by a forthcoming report to be released in July 2017, which will analyze trends and patterns across standard-setting MSIs.
