To accompany its major report, Not Fit-For-Purpose, MSI Integrity partnered with Harvard Law School’s International Human Rights Clinic in the cross-posted blog series, “Rethinking Multi-Stakeholder Initiatives.” The series shares critical perspectives on MSIs from a range of voices, with a particular focus on whether they are working for rights holders and whether we need to rethink the role of MSIs as human rights tools.
