Portuguese version: From Commitment to Impact: A Guide for Local Working Groups on Business, Security and Human Rights

This guide, developed by DCAF and Fund For Peace, aims to encourage and support the development of effective In-Country Working Groups (ICWGs) that foster responsible business conduct. Building from lessons learned and recommendations from stakeholders' experiences, this Guide explores approaches that worked (or did not work) in the past. Additionally, this Guide draws on the companion research study  which is based on in-depth interviews and field research gathered from a wide range of key stakeholders participating in ICWGs. These two products were developed to provide guidance to existing groups, to encourage effective implementation of new in-country processes, and more broadly to establish a rubric for how security and human rights multi-stakeholder processes can be implemented at the national and sub-national level worldwide.
