MSI Integrity partnered with academic institutions and local, national, and international organizations to explore the impact and value of multi-stakeholder and other voluntary initiatives as human rights tools. This included a Global Research Network that MSI Integrity launched to encourage researchers and practitioners interested in MSIs to critically examine whether MSIs are effective tools, and to deepen research into MSIs. This network was launched by a steering committee of leading scholars, researchers and practitioners from both the Global North and Global South. It is an autonomous network and is run separately from MSI Integrity.
As one of its first steps in its new direction as an organization (see Beyond Corporations), MSI Integrity is enlisting members on a rolling basis to its Advisory Circle. The Circle will provide input and guidance for MSI Integrity’s future work challenging the corporate form.
Our project partnerships have included:
Network Fighting Hunger in Cameroon (RELUFA), forthcoming research project into affected community experiences of transnational multi-stakeholder initiatives.
Harvard Law School’s International Human Rights Clinic, MSI Evaluation Tool, five pilot evaluations of MSIs.
Albert Hirschman Centre on Democracy at the Graduate Institute, Geneva and the John Parke Young Initiative on the Global Economy at Occidental College, Global Research Network on MSIs.
Miller & Chevalier, database of transnational multi-stakeholder initiatives.
The Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, database of transnational multi-stakeholder initiatives.
Social Impact Hub, project to research existing impact measurement tools and analyze those tools that may be applicable to assessing the impact of MSIs from a human rights perspective.
Banyan School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) Advocates, MSI Evaluation Tool.
