The IMF and Civil Society; Striking A Balance

Thomas C. Dawson and Gita Bhatt

No 01/2, IMF Policy Discussion Papers from International Monetary Fund

Abstract: In the space of just a few years, the term “civil society” has entered the international policy vocabulary in many contexts. The IMF’s engagement with civil society organizations (CSOs) raises several broad questions: Which CSOs have been, and should be, engaged by the Fund? What questions should IMF-CSO engagement address? What are the limits to the dialogue? This paper examines the evolution of IMF-civil society relations and their effects on the Fund. It also seeks to identify the tensions that underlie the relationship.
