Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book offers a human rights-based critique of the World Bank and IMF through a rigorous and in-depth application of international legal rules governing the proper interpretation of the institutions' mandates.

Synopsis:

Much has been written on the human rights relevance and impacts of the policies and activities of the World Bank and IMF, or International Financial Institutions (IFIs). However, while many of the human rights-based critiques of the Bank and Fund purport to link broadly defined reforms with obligations under international human rights law, rarely has this been carried out through a rigorous and in-depth application of international legal rules governing the proper interpretation of the institutions' mandates, and rarely have the policy consequences and practical possibilities for human rights integration been explored in any detail. These are the principal gaps that this book fills, by reference to a sample of the IFIs' most important and controversial contemporary activities.
