The Institute for Multi-Stakeholder Initiative Integrity (MSI Integrity) was incubated at the International Human Rights Clinic at Harvard Law School from 2010-2012 after several NGOs and government officials — concerned with understanding whether MSIs were working — suggested that an independent organization be created to focus on measuring the effectiveness of MSIs. MSI Integrity was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) organization in late 2012 and launched publicly in 2013. We immediately held a global consultation to seek feedback on our mission, objectives, and methodology. Since launching publicly, MSI Integrity has worked to foster a culture of critical reflection on whether MSIs are effective at protecting and promoting human rights. We are based in San Francisco, CA.
