Studies to assess Bank/civil society relations

6 September 2003

CIVICUS, in conjunction with several other civil society groups, is preparing a study assessing civil society interactions with the World Bank. It is reviewing a number of the different processes where the Bank has consulted civil society, at the international level as well as in-country. The Bank is simultaneously producing a report giving its perspectives on relations with civil society. The reports will be discussed in late October at a meeting of civil society groups and high-level Bank staff in Washington DC.

This is being organised as part of follow-up to the now disbanded NGO World Bank Working Group. CIVICUS welcomes inputs from any civil society organisations that have undertaken assessments of World Bank-civil society relations, or who wish to share their own experiences of engagement with the World Bank.
