After four and a half years based in Christian Aid’s building in Waterloo the Bretton Woods Project has moved. It is now hosted by Action Aid in Archway, North London. The Project is very grateful to Christian Aid for its generous support of the Project and will continue to work with Christian Aid and all the other groups in the network. The Project is also very grateful to the MacArthur Foundation which has recently approved a grant to help take forward the Project’s work.
In the news
In December 2013, the German Development Institute, Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung and Bretton Woods Project, in collaboration with the G-24, hosted a high-level workshop in Berlin to foster an open exchange on the profound changes in the global economy and the implications for global economic governance and its constituent institutions and members.
Last year BRICS' leaders agreed to launch a BRICS development bank. Whether this is considered positive depends in part what questions are being asked. Sameer Dossani of ActionAid International highlights the flaws in the World Bank and IMF, analyses whether a BRICS Bank could be different from these institutions and proposes what it should do and what it should look like.
The Bretton Woods Project is an ActionAid hosted project (UK registered charity no. 274467).
