The World Bank: An institution with many faces
The World Bank is one of twin institutions established to stabilise the post-war international economic structure and provide development assistance. It has been subject to much criticism.

It concludes that there is an alternative image of the World Bank, one that shows it is a more diverse and multi-facetted institution than its critics allow.
