In public diplomacy, stakeholder consultations mean processes that enable exchange of information between diverse stakeholders (including between IOs, governments and non-state stakeholders) in order to provide input reflecting their needs and interests relating to the policy that is the subject of the consultation.
At the Institute, we use socially appropriate and gender-sensitive consultation methods that enable effective consultation with different stakeholder groups, including those that may be under-represented, excluded, or marginalized.
Tapping into a broad range of perspectives strengthens the outcomes and accountability of our engagement with IOs.
It is through these consultations that we can help implement more effective solutions to global development challenges.
