Amnesty International’s written statement for the 24th session of the Human Rights Council (9 to 27 September 2013): The World Bank and other International Financial Institutions must uphold human rights in all activities they support

, N° d'index: IOR 41/020/2013

The decisions, policies and projects promoted by international financial institutions (IFIs) have significant and often far-reaching impacts on human rights. While the impacts of these institutions can be positive, too often the impact is negative, with poor and marginalised individuals and communities suffering the most negative impacts. The organizations submitting this joint statement urge the United Nations Human Rights Council to increase its focus on the human rights impact of IFIs, including multilateral development banks, such as the World Bank.
