Task Team Studies of Multi-stakeholder Initiatives

There is an opportunity for the Task Team on CSO Development Effectiveness and Enabling Environment (Task Team) to undertake another study following successful completion of the Comparative Studies of Multi-Stakeholder Initiatives (MSIs) 2016.

The Task Team commissioned a Knowledge Professional, Dr. Veriene Melo, to undertake an initial literature review for the first phase of the study, under the guidance of Professors Alan Fowler and Kees Biekart of the international Institute of Social Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam.

Findings from this initial literature review will be used to inform further debate within the Task Team on knowledge needs and gaps that can be addressed through future in-depth studies. In combination with other ongoing policy-oriented initiatives, this work is intended to help advance the Task Team’s mandate on CSO development effectiveness and the CSO enabling environment.
