Forest Peoples’ Programme has produced three new briefings on World Bank policy reformulation processes (see previous Bretton Woods Updates). They cover the Indigenous Peoples’ Policy, Forest Policy, and general policy reformatting issues. The briefings state that “despite assurances from the Bank that its safeguard policies are not being diluted, NGOs are finding disturbing evidence of policy weakening”.
BWP briefing explores IMF's labour market policies in the context of women in the informal economy and suggests they will not contribute to decreasing inequalities.
The Bretton Woods Project published an edited volume on the gendered impacts of some of the most commonly-prescribed macroeconomic policies of the IMF, covering tax, expenditure and labour policies.
