U.S. Congress Introduces New Legislation To Examine Contributions To Multilateral Institutions

Center for Global Development’s “U.S. Development Policy”: Congress Wants to Take a Closer Look at Multilateral Institutions
Scott Morris, senior fellow and director of the U.S. Development Policy Initiative at CGD, discusses new legislation introduced in Congress to develop a way to assess U.S. contributions to multilateral institutions through multilateral aid reviews (MARs). Morris writes, “It is encouraging to see such strong intellectual leadership coming from the Hill on the details of U.S. foreign assistance. But as the legislation itself recognizes, leadership on a MAR must ultimately come from the executive branch. Unfortunately, very little from the past nine months reassures me that this administration would approach a MAR as a means to strengthen multilateralism, rather than a way to walk away from longstanding multilateral partners” (10/5).
