DevelopmentEdit

The World Bank website offers a Social analysis sourcebook and a history of Social analysis at the World Bank:

"Social analysis entered the Bank’s agenda in 1968, when then-Bank President Robert McNamara emphasized the importance of addressing world poverty. In an institution that had primarily invested in roads, bridges and dams, this announcement signaled a paradigm shift that was pivotal in reshaping the Bank’s outlook regarding the relevance of social issues to the lending portfolio.73 The World Bank was not alone in undergoing this fundamental shift in approach. Many other multilateral, bilateral and academic institutions began searching for the best way to factor the “social” into development. The United Nations created the Human Development Index (HDI) as a means of better assessing the human condition throughout the world."
