You are Invited – Book Launch: Legislating International Organization

The Program on America and the Global Economy (PAGE) Presents a Book Discussion:

Legislating International Organization:  The US Congress, the IMF, and the World Bank

Kathryn Lavelle, Author, former Fellow, Woodrow Wilson Center and Ellen and Dixon Long Associate Professor of World Affairs, Case Western Reserve University

Moderated by: Kent Hughes, Director, PAGE, Woodrow Wilson Center

Covering the history of the IMF and World Bank from their origins, Lavelle shows that domestic political constituencies in advanced industrial states have always been important drivers of international financial institution policy. She focuses in particular on the U.S. Congress, tracing its long history of involvement with these institutions and showing how the Congress wields significant influence. The impact of 2008 financial crisis has focused American politics on the global role played by the IMF and World Bank.
