 The Governance of the International Monetary Fund

Show Summary Details


In view of its influence, it is of interest to consider to what extent the IMF's (International Monetary Fund) own governance meets the standards of transparency and accountability required to ensure the ownership of programmes by member countries, and the prudent and effective use of international public resources. This chapter takes up that question, and begins with an analysis of the IMF's power structure and of the issues raised by its current patterns of decision‐making.
