Bringing Balance to the IMF Reform Debate
AbstractThis paper summarises the outcome of formal discussions among scholars, former policymakers and senior officials of International Monetary Fund (IMF) member countries that took place in 2007â€“08 regarding the future of the IMF and how its responsiveness to member countries might be improved. It relates member countriesâ€™ concerns about ownership and conditionality in IMF programmes; emphasizes the usefulness of IMF surveillance and considers its limitations; highlights opportunities for the IMF to better interact with regional financial organisations; and investigates how the IMF might address problems of representation and accountability. The concluding section summarises the policy recommendations arising from the consultations.
