This book explores the political motivations for IMF and World Bank funding in MENA looking at both geo-politics and domestic political events in the recipients.

Several of these recipient countries have been hailed by the institutions as successful reformers, and the growth observed has been regarded as a result of these reform programmes. However, the link between international€finance projects and economic reform and growth€is not€always straightforward. This book presents€the argument€that€many of the affected€MENA countries have not been as succesful as often claimed, and that growth in€the one unequivocal success story - Tunisia - was more the result of€a strong state-led development programme than€IMF and World Bank programmes.
