The Bretton Woods Project and other organisations have been discussing a new collaborative website to assemble documents and links on World Bank-related policy issues. It will focus in particular on the roles of the World Bank as “knowledge bank”. The site will contain original material discussing the knowledge bank, video clips of activists questioning the Bank’s role, and up to date links to specific pages and documents on key NGO and research sites. To function well the initial site will need feedback and cooperation from a wide range of organisations.
