The AA1000 Stakeholder Engagement Standard has been designed to be multi-purpose, not just for sustainable development, and can be used by businesses, civil society, public bodies and multi-stakeholder networks and partnerships. A comprehensive, hands-on manual for practitioners is currently under development.

Professor Oren Perez of Bar Ilan University, Israel recently published a discussion paper into the Wiki Process used to manage the revision of the AA1000SES. The paper entitled “Innovation and Disillusionment in E-Democracy Projects: AccountAbility's Second Wiki-Based Consultation Process” is available to download here.
