Beyond Integrity

Beyond Integrity, a new report produced by CAF, in collaboration with the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), examines how some companies are going above and beyond their traditional role to protect civic space.

Key findings

  • Privately held dialogues between key stakeholders and host governments can be more effective at initiating positive action than a public challenge.
  • Leveraging formal and informal cross-sectoral networks is instrumental in convincing corporations to act on behalf of civil society.
  • Firms in consumer-facing industries are responsive to large-scale social movements that raise awareness regarding human rights abuses;
  • Privately owned companies with strong ethics and values tied into the core business model, led by engaged leaders, are likely to respond to civil society;

Our case studies highlight how companies have championed and stood up for individuals and civil society organisations.
