Jaap Swart was born and raised in the Caribbean. This caused intense interest in intercultural communication and the problems of communication for development and education in multi-cultural societies. Social Geographer and Cultural Anthropologist by training (University of Amsterdam: UVA) Jaap worked for the UVA and ISS (Institute of Social Studies), returned to Curaçao in the Caribbean, joined the management of a secondary school and became active in the teacher union movement. Returning to The Netherlands he became General Manager of Radio Nederland Training Centre(RNTC), the Dutch institute for media-facilitated development, educational and intercultural communication. RNTC was and is active in development communication projects all over the world. Retired from RNTC in 2002 Jaap devotes most of his time to the application and critical assessment of media for journalistic, developmental and educational objectives (MOS. Media on the Spot) and to the role of media in mental health and cultural confrontation situations (MVI. Mind Venture International).
