Divide students into three groups. One group would represent the IMF or World Bank officials, the second group the rich countries, the third group the developing countries. Each group should create a short presentation outlining the necessary steps to reform the IMF or World Bank.

Each group should research the reform process online and then decide and agree upon how this reform should be enacted. After all groups present their ideas, students must write a short 1-page reflection about how their assigned role would respond to one of the two other reform proposals and why.

* Please note this is an advanced activity for classes that are already familiar with the World Bank and IMF and can be done instead of the Introduction to the IFIs activity.
