Note
  • Includes bibliographical references
  • This book discusses the legal status of the World Bank and the IMF, in relation to human rights obligations, and to closely related issues in the political and economic field. It deals with, among others, the following questions: (i) the World Bank and the IMF cannot be formal parties to human rights treaties but are they bound by customary international law? (ii) What is the position of the Executive Directors of the World Bank: do they have a duty to the states they "represent"? (iii) What are the human rights obligations for states as they participate in institutions like the World Bank and the IMF? Also discussed are the "horizontal force" of human rights obligations and the position of non-state actors in international law
