Zyta Gilowska [ˈzɨta gʲiˈlɔfska] (7 July 1949 – 5 April 2016[1]) was a Polish economist, academic, and politician.

Early life and education[edit]

Gilowska was born in Nowe Miasto Lubawskie on 7 July 1949.[2] In 1972, she graduated with a degree in economics from Warsaw University.[3] In 1981, she received her PhD in economics from Maria Curie-Sklodowska University in Lublin.[3]

Career[edit]

From 1972 to 1985, Gilowska was a research assistant at Maria Curie-Sklodowska University.[3] From 1995 to 1999, she was an associate professor at the same university.[3] In 2001, she became full professor at the Catholic University of Lublin.[3] From 1994 to 1996, she was a member of the liberal party, Freedom Union (Unia Wolności).[3] She is the former vice chairman of the Civic Platform (Polish: Platforma Obywatelska) party; however, she left the party on 21 May 2005[3] in protest over accusations by party colleagues of wrongdoing. From 2001 to 2005, she was a Sejm (the lower chamber of the Polish Parliament) deputy.

From 7 January to 23 June 2006, she was deputy prime minister and finance minister in the Law and Justice government under Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz.[2] She was dismissed due to allegations about her communist-era collaboration.[4][5] Paweł Wojciechowski replaced her as finance minister.[4]

From 22 September 2006 to 16 November 2007, she again was deputy prime minister and finance minister.[6] In October 2006, Gilowska was made the head of Poland's financial supervisory authority and the European Investment Bank governor of Poland.[3]
