The AI Appeals Board and the Appeals Process
The AI Appeals Board considers appeals claiming that the World Bank has improperly or unreasonably restricted access to information that it would normally disclose under the Policy, after the AI Committee (first stage of appeal) has confirmed the World Bank’s decision to restrict access.
The AI Appeals Board is an impartial body that considers second-stage appeals under the World Bank Policy on Access to Information. The AI Appeals Board consists of three independent, outside experts nominated by the World Bank's President and endorsed by the World Bank's Board of Executive Directors.
The AI Appeals Board members are appointed to serve a two-year term.
Appointed in 2012, the current AI Appeals Board members are:
