The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank are arguably the two least understood and most controversial international organisations. Both are key components of the international financial system and significant players in the worldwide response to the Global Financial Crisis. They also play a vital role in national economies (as seen for example in the IMF’s involvement in the euro-zone rescue and its analytical work on the historic rise in sovereign debt). This subject will focus on the IMF and World Bank while also providing students with a sophisticated understanding of the broader international financial system and its problems. It is taught by Mr Ogada, Assistant General Counsel in the IMF Legal Department, and Professor Mitchell, a former consultant to the IMF in Geneva and Washington DC. A half-day presentation will also be provided by the World Bank’s representative for the Pacific region. The subject provides a valuable insider’s perspective on the ‘Bretton Woods‘ institutions.
This subject examines the global financial order, with a strong focus on the international monetary system and the IMF.
