World Without World Bank
Action Week – 5th to 9th, April 2021
The World Bank and IMF are having their Spring Meetings (virtual) from April 5th to 11th where, as in the past, they will go ahead and laud themselves for the achievement of doling out billions of dollars for supporting economies through the pandemic. Through these loans it is defining development and reshaping policies and economies. In India, from support for privatisation of the banking sector to support for the new farm laws, electricity reforms, privatisation of coasts and sea, the IMF and the World Bank have been very clear on the neoliberal reform agenda.
As a sign of protest to the World Bank’s policies, interventions and impacts on economies, Indian groups, under the aegis of Working Group on IFIs (WGoIFIs.net) are organising a week of protest “World Without World Bank – Action Week” from April 5th-9th. As a part of that, the Working Group on IFIs and CFA is organising two webinars on the 5th and 9th of April, 2021. Please find the details below.
