research

Multi-stakeholder partnerships (MSPs) are widely acknowledged as crucial for catalyzing global change; however, they often have limited impact, even yielding unintended, irrational outcomes. Moreover, initiators of change often face an uphill battle to modify social norms. Nonetheless, pressing societal problems such as sustainable trade require multi-stakeholder collaboration. Therefore, there is an urgent need to understand how such initiators catalyze change through convening MSPs. In my PhD, I study an organization that works toward the acceleration of sustainable trade, providing important insights into how such an initiator can effectuate social change, by taking up a convener role in partnerships that are rife with conflicting interests.
