Research Webinar 18: Assessing the Landscape of Multi-Stakeholder Initiatives

Research webinar with Ben Collins and Madeline Hung from MSI Integrity on standard-setting multi-stakeholder initiatives and their scope, governance, and operations. In this webinar, held on 21st September 2017, the growth and industry spread of standard-setting multi-stakeholder initiatives (MSIs) is assessed. It examines how these MSIs are governed and the extent to which they include different stakeholder groups. The analysis looks at how MSIs engage, or fail to engage the workers and communities that are most affected by the standards they set and explores if MSIs incorporate basic institutional elements necessary to effectively set and enforce their own standards.
