1. Sharpe, Albie. Pathways of change: a human security evaluation of a non-communicable disease prevention project in Sri Lanka.

Degree: Community Medicine, 2018, University of New South Wales

This research examines the potential for a human security evaluation (HS) method. Based on a review of HS and health promotion (HP) literature, I argued that both fields share common components and discourses of participation, empowerment and peace. In addressing the multiple causes of insecurity and poor health, both HP and HS could benefit from deeper collaboration and sharing of approaches. I developed a multi-dimensional framework for evaluating projects with a human security aspect: it should be multi-disciplinary, participatory, interlinked, multi-stakeholder and ethical. I then applied this to a non-communicable diseases prevention project in Sri Lanka, seeking to identify and explore interlinkages between health and broader knock-on ‘social’ outcomes. The research is embedded in constructivist understandings of social relationships, in which meanings and truths are socially constructed through shared interactions between people and their environments. I developed modified versions of the Most Significant Change (MSC) technique and the Health and Peacebuilding Filter to evaluate the project. Stakeholders (both implementers and community participants) were interviewed and 188 MSC stories were collected from 10 HP settings in three districts. I also employed project ethnography, using an ethnographic journal to document socio-political contexts, project discourses, processes and outcomes, as well as participatory observations and reflections on the evaluation process itself. I coded the transcripts structurally and thematically to explore complex linkages and recursive loops between project components and outcomes. Results showed interlinkages between project activities and direct outcomes, with broader complex and recursive impacts on outcomes such as education, livelihoods, community relationships, decision-making, social cohesion, conflict management, and leadership. Participants were able to identify many such interlinkages. Project weaknesses such as local human resource limitations and poor understanding of HP undermined many of the gains. This sometimes led to conflicts over resources and strategies, and problems in reaching more vulnerable communities. The tools identified socially significant linkages between various outcomes, demonstrating the utility of examining outcomes across traditionally unaligned sectors, such as HS and HP, and the potential for the further development of a HS evaluation approach. A number of limitations in the approach were identified that could be addressed through further research.

2. Kuehner, Zachary. Peace Through Health: Theory and Practice of the International Pediatric Emergency Medicine Elective (IPEME).

Degree: 2010, University of Toronto

This thesis seeks to evaluate the International Pediatric Emergency Medicine Elective (IPEME) as a case study of a peace-through-health initiative. Using the reasoning of Scolnik (2006), IPEME is first evaluated in terms of narrow, short-term outcomes and subsequently considered in terms of the greater body of peace-through-health work. A novel evaluation tool was designed to examine change in students’ ethical and professional attitudes over the course of the four-week elective. Supplementary qualitative data was collected to shed light on evaluation findings and provide insight into the advantages and disadvantages of the IPEME curriculum. Ethics and professionalism were defined in terms of the WHO 5 Star Global Criteria for Global Doctors conceptualized by the World Health Organization (Boelen, 1996). This research discusses these findings in light of the study’s limitations and considers their implications for IPEME as a medical elective and for its contribution to the greater body of peace-through-health work.

3. Green, Debbie Furlani. Peace-building for promoting well-being of communities in Nepal : Exploring the role of Social Workers.

Degree: Social Work and Psychology, 2018, University of Gävle

Nepal’s history is full of civil turbulence and the socio-economic development has been slow, however the last decade the social changes have been rapid. Some of the social changes include the profession of social work and peace initiative through inter-faith. The aim of this paper is to explore the role of social workers in peace-building in order to promote wellbeing and work-life in Nepal. This paper gives an insight into the life and relationship among the community members in Nepal, and an insight of how culture, religion, and history may impact people’s everyday-life. The data collection of this study was carried out through a field visit, with semi-structured interviews with twenty-five different key informants, during the period of February to May of 2018. The interviewees include grass-root to national level faith-leaders as well as social work academics. The result of this study indicates that there is a lack of trust among the community members, between government and its people, and government and its external influences, which effect community’s socio-economical standard. The findings also conclude that Nepali society lacks adequate and effective information-sharing, which seems to impact the community’s health and work-life. his study gives social workers an insight on how social bonds and trust among groups could be established, which could increase the well-being of the people in rural area of Nepal.
