Safeguarding Development and Social Protection: Challenges for a New Global Financial Architecture

9:00 – 10:30 a.m.
World Bank "I" Building/Room I1-200
1850I Street, NW

The global financial crisis presents new challenges for safeguarding development and social protection, as steps taken to mend the struggling financial system – in both its regulation, institutional organization, and governance – have now been put forward at the G-20 Summit. This panel will address specifically the need for more transparent and democratic political processes to ensure that the new financial arrangements are accountable to the needs of people and not only of the financial system and its primary actors. The Friedrich Ebert Stiftung invites representatives of civil society to take the occasion of the spring meetings of the IMF and World Bank to discuss these urgent matters with Dean Baker, Co-Director, Center for Economic and Policy Research; Sony Kapoor, Managing Director, Re-Define (Rethinking Development, Finance & Environment); and Damon Silvers, Associate General Counsel, AFL-CIO. This event is hosted by the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung New York. To RSVP, please contact Sara Burke at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Media Briefing: The IMF's Crisis Lending: Cuts in Social Spending Demanded for Poor Countries as G8 Plans Stimulus

As the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank prepare for their Spring Meetings in Washington, D.C. April 25-26th, the IMF has been calling for a global fiscal stimulus to counteract the world recession. But its actions tell a different story: in the loans it has made since October 2008 - when the crisis saved the IMF from near-irrelevance - the conditions continue to require contractionary measures that will intensify the impact of the recession on the most vulnerable people. Deficit reduction, interest rate hikes, and cuts in government spending are common to most of the programs - precisely the opposite of what the U.S. and other industrialized countries are doing to minimize the pain.

CEPR Co-Director Mark Weisbrot joined
Peter Bujari, executive director of the Human Development Trust in Tanzania and Inga Paparde, Latvian AIDS activist and journalist. The call was moderated by Joanne Carter, executive director RESULTS Educational Fund.

A transcript is available on the RESULTS site.
