The International Investment Rules Project has launched a new website and list-serve dedicated to providing coverage, critique, and links to the emerging rule-making and governance of investment in international, regional and bilateral investment rules and markets. The International Investment Rules Project is working to develop a governance framework for foreign direct and portfolio investment that promotes environmental sustainability, human rights, global security, and economic inclusion.
Originally created to help the poor escape poverty and deprivation, the World Bank became the most important advocate for the commercialised microcredit model. Yet, critics argued it undermined the chances of sustainable and equitable development to create a poverty trap of historic proportions.
While the World Development Report (WDR) 2018 on education has some redeeming features, it is part of the Bank's longstanding very narrow view of education, and is silent on education financing.
