MSI Integrity has been invited and will attend an exclusive conference at Wilton Park in London, UK, from April 28-30 on a topic that is at the heart of MSI Integrity’s mission: “Increasing the effectiveness of multi-stakeholder initiatives through active collaboration”. Wilton Park is a globally recognized forum for strategic discussion that organizes over 50 events each year focusing on international security, prosperity, and justice. Events at Wilton Park bring together leading representatives from the worlds of politics, diplomacy, academia, business, civil society, the military, and the media.
Amelia Evans, co-founder of MSI Integrity, was invited to attend the conference to contribute her knowledge and experience from investigating the impact and value of MSIs, and developing an MSI Evaluation Tool to assess the structural design and governance processes of MSIs from a human rights perspective. Amelia also presented as an expert panelist at the 2nd Annual UN Forum on Business and Human Rights in Geneva in December 2013, on the topic of MSI effectiveness for implementing the UN Guiding Principles. That presentation was briefly outlined in a Business and Human Rights Resource Center (BHRRC) blog post in December, reporting on events at the Forum.
