The Bretton Woods Committee is the preeminent non-profit organization dedicated to effective international economic and financial cooperation.

Towards this end, we demonstrate the value of multilateralism and improve the performance of the international financial institutions (IFIs) through public dialogue, advocacy and policy analysis.

Our mission is supported by:

  • A diverse, global membership of leaders from business, finance, government and academia who are an unparalleled source of ideas and expertise
  • We are an independent, non-partisan advocate for the key multilateral institutions. We help inform public officials that global economic prosperity is best served through effective multilateralism.
  • We convene flagship conferences on the most critical economic and financial topics. These serve as important fora for dialogue and debate between BWC members, senior policymakers, multilateral officials, private sector leaders and prominent academics.
  • Working groups organize roundtables, seminars, conferences, and other events to analyze and make policy recommendations on emerging issues impacting the future of finance, trade and global development.
  • Special projects produce reports and publications with unbiased analysis and policy prescriptions on ways in which the multilateral system – and the institutions that comprise it – can be strengthened and made more effective

The Committee’s membership team seeks the help of one intern (20-30 hours per week each) for the remainder of summer and fall of 2022. The internship term will commence as soon as possible and will conclude in December. The internship pays a $750 stipend.
