Abstract

The Tilburg Guiding Principles on World Bank, IMF and Human Rights relate to human rights obligations for international financial institutions (like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund), link these legal obligations to the economic and political realities the organizations are confronted with, and discuss the possible redress of adverse human rights impacts of the activities of the financial institutions. The Guiding Pinciples have been drafted by a group of experts, meeting at Tilburg University, The Netherlands, in October 2001 and April 2002.
