An assessment of the relationship between the major international economic organizations (IEOs) and the developing countries. The emphasis is on the role of multilateral actors and therefore the organizations discussed are intergovernmental rather than nongovernmental. The book focuses on two separate but interlinked issues: first, the relevance of the activities of the IEOs to the developmental needs of the developing countries; second, the demands made by third World states in the relevant institutions. Taking a broadly international political economy approach the book should be particularly useful for students and researchers in development and international economics, international relations and politics.
