MSI Integrity is pleased to announce that our Board has adopted the core recommendations from our 2013 global consultation and review process. The Board has released a statement explaining all of the actions that MSI Integrity will take to meaningfully implement the Advisory Group’s core recommendations, which is available on our website.
The feedback throughout the process strongly affirmed the value and need for MSI Integrity to evaluate MSIs, facilitate research into the human rights impact of MSIs and to share learning regarding MSI effectiveness. An Advisory Group, made up of experts with backgrounds in business, human rights, government, and academia, reviewed the comments and presented MSI Integrity’s Board with the Advisory Group Recommendations and Considerations Report (“Report”) in October 2013. The report reiterated the support for MSI Integrity’s work and proposed evaluation framework and provided constructive recommendations based on the comments from the consultation process.
We would like to thank everyone who participated in the consultations for their input, and the Advisory Group for their strong support of MSI Integrity and helpful recommendations on how to further develop our work and organization.
