About the Author
Wim Swann has a Master’s in Economics from Delhi School of Economics and History from the Woodrow Wilson School of Princeton University. She worked with the World Bank over the period 1971 to 2006, where she was actively involved as a ‘front-line operator’ to help put remotely-conceived development plans into action. She dealt with issues related to civil society, including those arising out of preconceptions about gender. She served as counselor to the president on issues involving ethics, values, rights, and faith in development work: which reflects the recent growing realisation that development institutions like the World Bank share common goals with religious traditions in the alleviation of poverty and its attendant problems; and that there is the need for a symbiotic dialogue between these two in order to maximise the benefits from their working together synergistically since 2000. She is also associated with Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs.
