Accountability Counsel Begins Work on State Department Advisory Board

After two years of advocacy by Accountability Counsel and partners, the U.S. Department of State has agreed to form a Stakeholder Advisory Board to “provide recommendations … on implementation of the OECD Guidelines, including their public promotion, collaboration between the U.S. National Contact Point and stakeholders to anticipate and address future challenges in a proactive manner, and the operations of the U.S. NCP. The SAB is comprised of leaders from business, labor, civil society, and academia.”  Accountability Counsel is a member of the new Board, which began initial meetings in March 2012.  More information about Accountability Counsel’s U.S. NCP advocacy efforts is available here.
