Arundhati Roy's initial findings of the in India that took place in Delhi at the end of September 2007

The Independent People's Tribunal on the World Bank Group in India was the first People's Tribunal in India which brought together a broad spectrum of society to look at the damage caused by the World Bank to the country as a whole. Affected communities and concerned groups presented testimonies across four days in order share experiences and to inject a sense of responsibility for people's rights into the discourse about the Bank.

The process is ongoing. Groups are discussing state-wide Tribunals, the testimonies are being collected to publish in print and on the web, and Tribunals in other countries have already taken place.
