Banking on Knowledge: The Genesis of the Global Development Network

By Diane Stone | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

In one of the many planning meetings that took place in the World Bank Institute (WBI) to launch the Global Development Network, the idea for this book was first floated. Many people inside and outside the WBI played a small or large part in its development. I am particularly indebted to Ishac Diwan who provided me with the opportunity to learn about the 'Knowledge Bank' and to participate in the launch of the network as a member of the GDN secretariat.

Alongside Erik Johnson, Haleh Bridi and Susan Wilder, other people in the WBI involved in the GDN include Chris Duggan, Mona Yafi, Maxine Alonso Pineda, Mariana Todorova, Karen Sirker and Hana Salah. In addition, Ron Kim, David Ellerman, Lawrence MacDonald, Wolfgang Reinicke and Salah Brahimi, who were based elsewhere in the World Bank, were also very helpful during my time in Washington. Kent Weaver from the Brookings Institution and Jim McGann also provided insight and alternative viewpoints that informed my thinking about the themes in this volume.

The three anonymous referees, and especially Don Abelson and William Wallace, provided thoughtful advice, sound criticism and strong encouragement to proceed with this project. I was in the fortunate position to be on study-leave from the University of Warwick during the first of half of 2000. Consequently, this volume rapidly took shape from February through May 2000 while I was based as a visiting fellow in the political science program of the Research School of Social Sciences at the Australian National University. I am grateful to the director of the school, Ian McAllister, and the staff, visitors and graduate students in the program who made it such a pleasant and productive stay. Lorraine Elliott, Tomoko Akami, Anna George and Toni Makkai reminded me that there was much more to life than the GDN.

In the desire to produce this book in time for the second GDN conference, all the contributors in the volume must be thanked for meeting my demands and deadlines for drafts with great equanimity. Additionally, Craig Fowlie and Milon Nagi at Routledge were very cooperative and flexible in the quick production of the book. Finally, I am very thankful to Richard Higgott for tolerating in good humour my long absences in the USA and Australia.
