Guide helps civil society understand and leverage the OECD accession process to demand reforms in candidate states

This guide for civil society by OECD Watch and members Conectas and the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) explains how the OECD accession process works and highlights key moments and methods for civil society advocacy to leverage the political and technical process to demand reforms in candidate states. The guide is available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese below.

The guide explains in detail:

  • What the OECD is, why membership is important for states, and why accession can provide a useful tool for civil society to achieve reforms in candidate states;
  • How the three phases of accession work; and
  • What steps civil society can take, when, and towards which actors, to demand rigorous terms and a rigorous review for the candidate state.
