who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Who we are - Alex Wilks. Alex Wilks is a long-standing activist and analyst on World Bank and IMF issues. He runs the European Network on Debt and Development - based in Brussels.

From 1995 until last year he was Coordinator of the Bretton Woods Project, a UK-based watchdog of the World Bank and IMF. He was also heavily involved in establishing IFIwatchnet - a collaborative web initiative of 60 groups worldwide who monitor the International Financial Institutions.

I want this website to shine a light on the financial and political interests around the World Bank and to add to the pressure to change the governance of the institution.
