Abstract

The article examines the dialogue between the Global Unions, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund which was formalized in 2002 and was originally initiated by the Global Unions. The dialogue takes place at three levels: headquarters; sector; and country-level. The Global Unions try to use the dialogue to persuade the International Financial Institutions to change their policies to promote and integrate a stronger social component within the system of global governance. The article focuses on the headquarters-level dialogue and examines some of the factors which promote and hinder the success of the dialogue from the perspective of the Global Unions.
