Research network on the World Bank

13 June 2005

In April, a conference of doctoral students and senior researchers was held at the Central European University in Budapest to “reflect on the past operations, policies and programmes and future directions of the World Bank”. Sponsored by the University of Warwick’s Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation, The World Bank, and the Center for Policy Studies, conference participants discussed the Bank’s role in knowledge and norms, PRSPs and poverty, environmental issues and donor harmonisation; as well as discussing reform agendas for the Bank, and engagement between the Bank and the research world.
