WASHINGTON D.C. – SEPTEMBER 27, 2013
In September 2013, the Inspection Panel will host the Tenth Annual Meeting of Independent Accountability Mechanisms at International Financial Institutions.
On September 27, the Panel will organize a public event to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Inspection Panel and 10th anniversary of the Network of Independent Accountability Mechanisms at International Financial Institutions. It will highlight and mark the World Bank’s pioneering approach and contribution to citizen-driven accountability in international development cooperation. The institution of such a mechanism has since been followed by other IFIs, which later set up their accountability mechanisms, including the Asian Development Bank, African Development Bank, Inter-American Development Bank, European Investment Bank, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, Japan Bank for International Cooperation and others. Ten years ago, on the initiative of the Inspection Panel, these mechanisms have formed a network.
The event will be open to public and will be targeted at civil society organizations, think tanks and academia focusing on conflict resolution and grievance redress in international development, private sector and trade unions, and staff and the Board of the World Bank and other IFIs based in Washington D.C.
