Blurb/Shorttext:
Revision with unchanged content. Using the Canada International Scientific Exchange Program (CISEPO) this book examines whether narrow or broad health-for-peace interventions are more successful. CISEPO builds bridges to peace between Israelis, Jordanians and Palestinians through medical and scientific co-operation. Drawing on medical, philosophical and international relations sources and in­terviews with key workers this book explores these concepts. Participants de­fined project level (narrow) endeavours, and broader, program level underta­kings such as the establishment of knowledge networks. While frontline wor­kers favoured narrow, time-limited, projects seeing broad, long-term projects as unrealistic, planners espoused the ‘long view’, accepting that programma­tic goals take years to attain. The study suggests that the relationship between narrow and broad concepts is not either/or-both are needed simultaneously in differing measure depen­ding on the undertaking. Short-term successes are necessary to sustain long-term goals and to measure and conceptualize success, but long-term goals are essential for ensuring overall direction and philosophy of the NGO.
