On 14 April 2022, the Progressive International launches its first IMF Inquiry, featuring Jayati Ghosh, Yanis Varoufakis, Andrés Arauz and many others.
A review of the IMF’s recent lending practices reveals a pattern of illegality, impunity, and disregard for human rights. In each case, the IMF has protected capital outflows to creditors while forcing countries into perpetual debt crisis. Is this even legal?
Convening economists, lawyers, and expert witnesses from around the world, we will demand answers from the IMF. As billions around the world face escalating crises of unemplyoment, hunger and sovereign debt, we will petition for public access to critical information about the Fund’s ongoing programs around the world.
