STRENGTHENING MULTI-STAKEHOLDER INITIATIVES: BUILDING ON A CONSTRUCTIVE CRITIQUE

This panel discussion was convened to consider the effectiveness and impact of multi-stakeholder initiatives. In particular, it builds on MSI-Integrity’s recently released report ‘Not fit-for-purpose’, which pulls no punches in its assessment of forty MSI’s over the last decade. The report’s findings present an opportunity to reflect on the ways MSIs are working well and areas that need strengthening. The first hour is a round-table discussion with panelists considering each of the reports six insights in turn. Questions from the online audience are considered by the panels in the final half-hour. The panel considers, amongst other topics:

  • How the voices of affected communities can be strengthened within multi-stakeholder initiatives?
  • Whether multi-stakeholder initiatives can better protect rights-holders against human-rights abuses?
  • What steps need to be taken to ensure multi-stakeholder initiatives are fit-for-purpose?
