The World Bank Group

The World Bank Group (WBG) is a family of five international organizations that make leveraged loans to developing countries.
The WBG works in every major area of development and provides a wide array of financial products and technical assistance, and help countries share and apply innovative knowledge and solutions to the challenges they face.

At the Institute, we believe that engaging with the WBG helps improve our impact on society.
With our subject-matter expertise and field experience, public diplomats bring vital knowledge to help advance policy change.

Institute for public diplomacy


To deliver our mission INSTITUT DE DIPLOMATIE PUBLIQUE as a non-state actor in diplomacy facilitates and promotes the contribution of stakeholders from different sectors at the global level, including at the IMF and World Bank Group special events.

Stakeholder engagement is conducted in a gender-responsive, culturally sensitive, non-discriminatory and inclusive manner, ensuring that potentially affected vulnerable and marginalized groups are identified and provided opportunities to participate where conditions for inclusive participation are unfavorable.
We provide an inclusive and accessible space for the exchange of ideas, knowledge and experience so that the voices of our experts can be heard in the IMF and World Bank Group.
For this purpose, the Institute regularly receives special accreditations for conferences, summits, meetings, or other events organized by the IMF and World Bank Group.
Doctor/Ph.D. Members and Professional Members of the Institute are invited to indicate their interest to participate in the events.
We will heighten our collaboration at the global and national levels with the IMF and World Bank Group. Our intention is to accelerate our reach and ability to advance responsible public diplomacy practices around the world.
