5 Multi-stakeholder initiatives
Where can MSI be found?
This page contains two types of sources. Firstly, sources explicitly mentioned on the previous pages (“what?”, “why?” and “how?”), with their corresponding hyperlinks for further consultation, are arranged by the institution that released. Secondly, there is a bibliography of sources consulted to draft the tool, which can be useful for further inquiry about the topic.
Some multi-sectorial initiatives are part of an institution, others are independent initiatives. This tool describes the MSIs of four institutions of which Belgium is a member (United Nations, OECD, ILO and the EU) and the intergovernmental Kimberley Process. Finally, links are provided to MSIs in other countries.
