Abstract: The rationale for civil society organisations (CSOs) to engage in multi- stakeholder initiatives is to influence corporate activities to move in a more sustainable direction. Over the past 15 years, CSOs, which include non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and trade unions, have been involved in many different initiatives involving multiple stakeholders. This guidebook takes stock of the experiences they have gained and identifies lessons they have learned in the process. The aim is to strengthen the influence of CSOs in multi-stakeholder initiatives (MSIs). This guide is intended for professionals working for CSOs and participating in MSIs. It provides strategic perspectives for action and highlights critical issues to address when participating in MSIs. It is based on extensive research and experience gathered by SOMO over the years.
