For the next issue of the Bretton Woods Update we launch a new trial initiative to bring you broader insights into the international financial institutions. Update 60, which will be available in advance of the spring meetings of the World Bank and IMF in April, will be 50 per cent longer and will be produced in conjunction with colleagues at NGOs Afrodad, Instituto del Tercer Mundo, Eurodad and Bank Information Center. We hope that our readers will appreciate the additional issue depth and regional variety that their contributions will make, and look forward to your comments.
EarthRights International examines how the Jam v. IFC case has helped to shift the landscape of accountability for international financial institutions by successfully challenging their claim to “absolute” immunity in US courts, potentially opening IFC up to further legal challenges in future.

By monitoring the work of these institutions, supporting and connecting critical civil society communities, and advocating for transformational change, the Project challenges their power and fights for the development of policies that are gender transformative, equitable, environmentally sustainable and consistent with international human rights norms.
