Title
The World Bank, participation and PRSP: the Bolivian case revisited
Author
Abstract
'Highly Indebted Poor Countries' can receive debt relief from bilateral and multilateral donors if, among other things, they produce a Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP). Civil society must be involved in the formulation of the PRSP. It is expected that the participation of civil society will increase ownership, accountability, effectiveness and political performance. We argue that participation, as imposed by donors, is too ambitious to be workable and too vague to be monitored. The participation conditionality should be moulded to the specific history and institutional context of every country. We use Bolivia, generally regarded as an example of successful civil society participation in the PRSP, to make our point.
