Once again, the World Bank’s commitment to citizen and civil society engagement is being called into question as it drops a decade-old corporate commitment to project monitoring and withholds from the public a 2023 assessment of recent citizen engagement efforts.

Understanding the Bank’s chequered history with public, community, and civil society participation is key for understanding what is at stake and what to do next.

In this brief in the Bretton Woods Project’s At Issue series, Rachel Nadelman reflects on the past, discusses roll-backs of progress on citizen participation, and discusses the implications for advocacy strategy.
