The IMF Assessment Project was established in 1990 by a group of present and former public officials, business leaders, scholars, journalists and others interested in the International Monetary Fund. 

Its purpose is to provide objective reporting and analysis on the policies and activities of the Fund, and to make this information available to policy-makers and the general public.

Our reports strive to take neither a laudatory nor an adversarial view of the IMF in general. We seek, rather, to help to provide a solid base of information about the Fund's operations. 

We believe that a series of comprehensive, reliable, and objective reports on the IMF will greatly help the Fund, and policy~makers throughout its more than 140 member states, to improve the content of economic policy, the process of its formulation, and the communication of such policies to the global electorate. And we believe that, for various reasons, there is a need for greater understanding of the Fund -- a need heightened by the increasing reliance of governments, people, and the global marketplace on timely and accurate information.

The IMF Assessment Project operates on the generous support of foundations, corporations, and individual donors, under the aegis of the Alexis de Tocqueville Institution, a non-profit public research foundation with offices in Virginia and California.  AdTI studies the extension and perfection of freedom and democracy, and promotes public understanding of the critical principles of democracy articulated by Alexis de Tocqueville.
