Abstract: This thesis examines the role of the International Monetary Fund in Argentina's recent economic crisis. Exploring both domestic and international contexts, the research aims to uncover the main factors contributing to Argentina's default and devaluation in December 2001 and its aftermath. The International Monetary Fund, having played a key role in the country's economic policy decisions for decades, is closely scrutinized with regards to its pre- and post-crisis intervention in Argentina. The research concludes that, indeed, the IMF did make critical errors in its handling of the Argentine situation including support for the country's increasingly burdensome Convertibility Plan, conditionality terms requiring fiscal austerity, and failing to break from MABOP and its preoccupation with foreign investor sentiment. More broadly, in the conclusion of this thesis, lessons are drawn from these policy errors, and suggestions aimed at preventing another emerging market collapse are made.
