Abstract: This report assesses the contribution of the OECD Guidelines to responsible business conduct, sustainable development, and the resolution and reduction of conflicts between companies and communities regarding social issues, environmental concerns, and human rights. The report responds to three central questions: 1) What evidence exists that the OECD Guidelines have had a positive impact on the global conduct of multinational enterprises (MNEs) based in adhering countries?, 2) What aspects of (ir)responsible business conduct have not been addressed through the OECD Guidelines’ specific instance procedure, and why not?, 3) How successful have National Contact Points (NCPs) been in resolving conflicts between communities and corporations that have been brought to their attention?
