Reinventing the World Bank
News||15 June 1999|update 13|
In May Northwestern University, Chicago, and SOAS, London, organised a meeting to examine the World Bank's mission, operations and research output. The participants ranged from senior US Government officials, to researchers, World Bank staff, and campaigners from North and South. Whilst no consensus was reached on what needs to be done, some very interesting papers were presented. These include:
Most of the above papers are available on www.worldbank.nwu.edu. An edited volume will appear next year from Cornell University Press.
A report of the meeting is available from the Bretton Woods Project.
