Bretton Woods Project | Lionbliss Research


The Bretton Woods Project focuses on the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to challenge their power and open space for civil society and social movements to contribute to the development of policies that are gender transformative, equitable, environmentally sustainable and consistent with international human rights norms.


Established in 1995 by the UK-based Bond Development and Environment Group (DEG) to support civil society to monitor the negative impacts of World Bank and IMF policies and activities, BWP has, throughout its history, developed extensive knowledge about the Bank and Fund as institutions and an in-depth understanding of their role within the broader international development landscape.


The Project is funded by NGOs in the UK BWI network, the CS Mott Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Forge Foundation, and the Wellspring Philanthropic Fund. For an overview of BWP’s finances and funders see our latest annual report.
