Abstract:Nowadays it is very important for MNCs to have positive sustainable relationships with governments, NGOs and local communities. The concept of business diplomacy addresses this need which may also lead to getting a license to operate. Complementary, the continent of Africa is growing and more and more MNCs see this and act in order to benefit from Africa’s development. Participating in a Multi-stakeholder partnership (MSP) is one way to conduct business diplomacy in Africa. This thesis proves that MNCs’ participation in MSPs in Africa contributes to successful business diplomacy, as was been concluded out of publications from five Dutch MNCs.
