Anne Snick works as an independent researcher. She obtained a Ph.D. in Philosophy of Education at KU Leuven (Belgium). After ten years in academia, she engaged in fieldwork and transdisciplinary research in gender, poverty, and social economy, where she developed a methodological framework for transdisciplinary research including women in poverty, many of them with migrant backgrounds, as co-experts. She focuses on systemic drivers of exploitation but is mainly interested in emerging alternatives, including in academia and in sustainable finance. She wrote several peer-reviewed publications, serves the community through public speaking and workshops, and is engaged in various organizations promoting social justice and sustainability. She is a Fellow of the World Academy of Art & Science and an Associate Member of the Club of Rome.
