Why not replace the horrible word "multistakeholderism" with
"pluralism"? We would always complement it with (or contrapose it to)
"multilateralism", and there are one-word translations in most
languages, I guess.
An anglicism which is also a neologism in English, and on top of it is
an horrible word, frankly... where are the Germans, the French, sacré bleu?

When I find a nice calm situation where I can spend several months working out a clear articulation that would withstand the aggressive squeeze play attack of Milton & Parminder, I will get back to you. For now I will declare that for me, it is a pragmatic matter of realizing it is the only game in town.
