International Financial Institutions Research Site

    • This site lists research material on the international financial institutions. There are separate listings for the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank Group and other multilateral institutions. The listings include basic references, books and monographs, published articles and recent working papers. Prof. Joseph Joyce, Wellesley College.

    • Independent video shines light on the problems and practices of development finance institutions worldwide. Critical documentary, protest reports, animations, meetings, interviews and more: this is video that governments and corporations would often rather was not shared.IFIWatch.TV is for educators, activists, journalists, film-makers, students, officials and anyone else interested in what multilateral bodies are doing with our money, our neighbours, and our planet.

Global Transparency Resource

    • The goal of the global transparency resource is to make the world's international financial institutions more transparent. The reason that they want to do this is that they believe that the public should have a greater say in the way that these institutions operate.

The Bretton Woods Project

    • The Bretton Woods Project works as a networker, information-provider, media informant and watchdog to scrutinise and influence the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF). Through briefings, reports and the bimonthly digest Bretton Woods Update, it monitors projects, policy reforms and the overall management of the Bretton Woods institutions with special emphasis on environmental and social concerns. Created as an independent initiative by a group of British non-governmental organisations (NGOs), it works with an extensive network to press for increased transparency and civil society participation in World Bank and IMF policies and interventions.
