Students in the Program in Washington attended a working lunch at the World Bank hosted by Hasan Tuluy P ’08 on Dec. 1. Currently the World Bank Group’s vice president for human resources, Tuluy will become vice president for Latin America and the Caribbean in January. After providing an overview of the history, mission, financing and strategies of the World Bank, Tuluy challenged students to think about the purposes and complexities of development assistance. The group also discussed careers in international affairs.
In the photograph, the students stand before a statue in the atrium of the bank that commemorates the efforts of governments, the private sector and the World Bank and other international agencies to combat the deadly water borne disease of onchocerciasis, commonly known as riverblindness.
