Chapter Summary

The concept of public participation is at the heart of the World Bank Inspection Panel (Panel) procedure. In particular, it aims at taking due account of the interests of local populations in borrowing countries and ensuring means for access to justice. The Panel procedure is characterised by flexibility and the fact that it is non-judicial in nature. The favoured method of seizing the Panel is based on complaints by private persons who consider that they have been adversely affected by a project. The Panel procedure sheds light on new trends in the contemporary legal order, especially on the need to build public spaces enabling relationships between partners destined to work side-by-side. The World Bank has joined this emerging trend by establishing the Panel as well as by taking part in the implementation of other innovative mechanisms with respect to the international decision-making process.
