World Bank Papers

World Bank Working papers derive from completed or ongoing work and are published in a relatively unpolished form to communicate findings and encourage comment. They present the results of economic, financial, or technical research; country experience or analysis; operational evaluations; detailed background or case studies; performance guidelines; or other technical materials.

 

In October 2002, the Working Paper series replaced the Discussion and Technical papers.

 

Unless otherwise stated, the findings, interpretations, and conclusions expressed in the papers are entirely those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Board of Executive Directors of the World Bank or the governments they represent.
