PressestimmenDarrow conveys a true mastery over the dense technocratic and economistic jargon of the IFIs, offering a powerful translation of how human rights can be 'enabled' in the IFIs' operations.Susan MatthewsLeiden Journal of International LawVol 19/1, July 2006By balancing a legal academic analysis with a rigorous evaluation of policy proposals for the integration of human rights at the Bank and Fund, Darrow appeals to a broad audience of policymakers, international legal experts, and human rights advocates.
