Multi-Stakeholder Initiatives: Improving Governance Through Synergies?

In the last decade, Multi-Stakeholder Initiatives (MSIs) have opened a new, exciting dimension for civil society-government cooperation, in an attempt to solve key governance challenges.

New approaches at collaboration include joint development of principles and goals, peer review and explicit involvement of civil society and private sector actors. Three key initiatives epitomise these efforts: the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM), the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) and the Open Government Partnership (OGP).

SAIIA, along with its US partner, Democracy International (DI), has published a set of six papers that explore various aspects of these initiatives and evaluate the successes and failures that they have had, through a project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). This project has researched best practices and evidence of impact with an eye towards supporting improved civic engagement in these and future initiatives.

This launch will feature a keynote address by Mr Mukelani Dimba (Co-Chair of the OGP Steering Committee), authors presenting their research findings, and a response from representatives of official OGP and APRM structures in South Africa.
