This has created a particular kind of politics of protest around these annual meetings. The chapter will specify the characteristics of this politics of protest, and what kind of civil society response we can therefore expect. In the final part of this book, in Chapter 5, we will discuss the future of these institutions. Will some sort of reformed neoliberalism become the new vantage point of multilateral institutions or will a new version of social corporatism take its place? Will we in future be confronted with a much more thoroughgoing privatisation of the multilateral system than that implied by the still rather limited inflow of private finance that we can observe today?
Even on key committees there was much misunderstanding of what the World Bank did and how it operated (see Schoultz 1982). The increased appropriation requests therefore became attractive targets. Over time there has also been a breakdown of discipline and effective leadership in Congress, making it increasingly difficult to manoeuvre unpopular aid requests through the labyrinthine authorisation and appropriation procedures. No fewer than five committees have significant jurisdiction over US policy towards the World Bank.
It was therefore a major blow financially for the UNDP when Denmark significantly reduced its contributions to the UNDP in 1999 (after Mark Malloch Brown was selected as Administrator over the Danish candidate). This means that the UNDP during the 1990s increasingly found itself facing a stark choice: to continue in its attempt to be the major provider and coordinator of technical assistance, or to transform itself to an upstream policy adviser. The UNDP under Mark Malloch Brown chose the latter option, and focused on governance and governance-related issues (see Chapters 3 and 4).
