Summary
  • "This book undertakes a specialised analysis of a topic that is highly significant both theoretically and practically. At the theoretical level, it discusses questions that have remained insufficiently answered in the fields of international human rights and institutional law. Notably, it clarifies how international human rights law conditions member States' governance role within international financial institutions and how this role is to be accommodated in the regime of international responsibility. Furthermore, the book's thorough discussion of member States' human rights due diligence duties offers a practical contribution to the understanding of what tools may be used by States to secure their human rights obligations when participating in international financial institutions. Its practical significance also relates to the examination of the various elements that must be demonstrated by an individual wishing to invoke member State responsibility for alleged human rights violations in the context of international financial institution operations"--
  • "The human rights implications of multilateral development bank operations are likewise extensive. Older accounts of WB-financed projects have extensively condemned the environmental and social damages arising therefrom. These include broader claims of accelerated deforestation of the tropics and neglect for rural farmers in agriculture projects, the forced resettlement of large numbers of people and inundation of areas of great environmental and scientific importance stemming from hydroelectric projects, and more specific allegations such as that of arsenic poisoning deriving from a project intended to provide groundwater from tube wells. Here, as elsewhere, the past seems to haunt the present, and despite the improvement of the Bank's operational policies, still today 'far too many violations' of the rights to water and sanitation stemming from large-scale development projects are brought to the attention of the Special Rapporteur on the right to food, to name but one example"--
