Congressional Research Service Report for Congress

The World Bank has taken an increasingly active role in providing post-conflict
aid. This assistance provides both short-term humanitarian relief and long-term
economic support for countries emerging from conflict. Although this aid is sanctioned
by the World Bank’s mandate, it raises questions that may be appropriate for
congressional oversight. These include how extensive is the World Bank’s
understanding of post-conflict aid’s effects on recipient countries and how well World
Bank aid is coordinated with other donors.

Congressional Research Service

The Congressional Research Service (CRS) serves shared staff to congressional committees and Members of Congress. CRS experts assist at every stage of the legislative process — from the early considerations that precede bill drafting, through committee hearings and floor debate, to the oversight of enacted laws and various agency activities.

CRS’s analytic capabilities integrate multiple disciplines and research methodologies. In a fast-paced, ever-changing environment, CRS provides Congress with the vital, analytical support it needs to address the most complex public policy issues facing the nation. Its work incorporates program and legislative expertise, quantitative methodologies, and legal and economic analysis.
