Jobs: World Bank Group Sanctions Board seeks applicants for several positions

The World Bank Group Sanctions Board is the final decision maker in contested cases of sanctionable practices in World Bank Group-financed development operations — primarily fraud, corruption, and collusion. Current members of the Sanctions Board include top international arbitrators, high court justices, and other leading jurists and development experts from around the world.

The Sanctions Board carries out a full de novo review in each case, and may hold hearings with oral argument and questioning. After completing its review and making a determination on liability and any appropriate sanctions, the Sanctions Board publishes fully reasoned decisions for each case. The Sanctions Board additionally publishes and periodically updates a Law Digest summarizing key holdings and past precedents.

The Sanctions Board Secretariat, established in September 2010, consists of a Secretary to the Sanctions Board and additional attorneys and other staff who together provide the legal and administrative support needed for the Sanctions Board’s effective functioning.
