Since launching publicly in 2013, MSI Integrity has worked to foster a culture of critical reflection on whether multi-stakeholder initiatives (MSIs) are effective at protecting and promoting human rights. In just a few years, we’ve held global consultations and public dialogues addressing questions of MSI effectiveness, released a major report into governance of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative and are close to finalizing a suite of public tools to allow others to evaluate MSIs.
We have big plans for 2016 and beyond, including the development of a global research network on MSIs, an analysis of the value and structure of complaints/grievance mechanisms in MSIs, and releasing a major report that reflects on the effectiveness of five prominent MSIs. To advance this work, and to promote more critical reflection on voluntary initiatives, we are delighted to be expanding our organization by creating two new roles: Program Director and Program Associate.
MSI Integrity is committed to understanding the value and impact of voluntary business and human rights-related initiatives through independent and transparent approaches that uphold human rights principles.
