Data4Development is a new team in Fall 2019. The team aims to answer big questions concerning shifts in global power and its consequences for the governance of world economy and socio-economic development. We study the shifting balance of power in international finance institutions (like the World Bank and IMF), the transparency and accounting of aid, and global indices (like the Corruption Perception Index) to assess and drive the performance of the state in the world economy. We collect key data such as relative economic weights of countries and other measures of national power and influence, staff composition in international financial institutions, and other variables to study power shifts in global economic governance. We sue the data to examine the variables that influence power within international financial institutions. One of the issues that this team looks at is how countries gain influence within these organizations. We look beyond the traditional measure of power – voting share, and look at the nationalities of key executives as an indicator of the country’s influence within that organization.
