Globalisation, governance, the IMF and the World Bank

Dr Ngaire Woods, director of the Global Economic Governance Programme at Oxford University, will explore Globalisation, Governance, the IMF and the World Bank in a public event at LSE on Monday 22 May.

Ken Shadlen and Professor Robert Wade, LSE, will then discuss the points raised by Dr Woods. Sir Nick Stern will chair this event.

What to do with the IMF and World Bank? Protesters say that these institutions make the poor even poorer and should be abolished. Some say the Fund and Bank are mere tools of US foreign policy. Now even prominent central bankers are calling for reform. This event explores what has gone wrong with these institutions and how we might put them right.

  • Dr Ngaire Woods is founder and director of the Global Economic Governance Programme at Oxford University. She is author of The Globalizers: the IMF, the World Bank and their Borrowers.
  • Ken Shadlen and Professor Robert Wade are based at the Development Studies Institute (DESTIN) at LSE.

Globalisation, Governance, the IMF and the World Bank is on Monday 22 May 2006 at 6.30pm in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton Street, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
