About the interview transcripts
The majority of the oral histories begin with a discussion of the background of the person being interviewed, examine the reason for joining or interacting with the World Bank, explore his or her career, and conclude with an assessment of the World Bank Group and reflections on its presidents and other influential staff members.   Some interviews depart from this template, opting for a less chronological account of the person’s career at the Bank or focusing only on a specific topic.
