Engaging in Peacemaking or Peacebuilding Activities is Not Considered to Be the Responsibility of Those Providing Humanitarian Assistance.
John Last, Two Challenges Tower Above All Others Confronting Us. Putting an End to Violent Armed Conflicts That Kill and Maim Millions is the Lesser; the Accelerating Crisis of Global Climate Change is the Greater of the Two. Unless We Control Both, the Future for Humanity is Bleak. [REVIEW]
Evan Lyon, Jim Yong Kim & Paul Farmer, Social Injustice and the Responsibility of Health-Care Workers: Observation, Assessment, Action.
Graeme MacQueen & Joanna Santa Barbara, In Developing Theory on Peace Through Health, It Seemed Important to Understand the Ways in Which Health Sector Actors Sought to Influence Peace in Their Arena of Action. The McMaster Group Attempted a Finer-Grained Examination of the Fundamental Mechanisms by Which Changes Might Be Induced. By Examining Accumulated Case Studies, We Developed the Following Typology (MacQueen Et Al. 1997). [REVIEW]
Graeme MacQueen, News Media Persist in Discussing the Achievement of Peace as Though Itwere the Responsibility of a Small Subgroup in Society—Leaders of States, of Nations, of Insurgent Groups or Factions. So-and-so Meets in a Secluded Location with What's-His-Name, and They Sign a Paper. Peace Ensues. As for the Bulk of the Affected Populations, They May Mill About in the Streets, They May Wave Placards or Raise Their Fists in the Air, but This is All Backdrop for the Real Action. [REVIEW]

Joanna Santa Barbara, Imagine You Are Facing a Problem with Both Peace and Health Dimen-Sions, Such as the Three Scenarios Presented in Chapter 1. Perhaps You Are the Health Worker Facing High Youth Suicide in an Aboriginal Com-Munity That has a Conflictual Relationship with the Dominant Culture, or the Physician Noting High Levels of Gun Violence in Emergency Admis-Sions, or a Member of the Team Helping to Reconstruct a Health System After Deadly Interethnic Conflict. Where Do You Start?
Joanna Santa Barbara, This Chapter Will Discuss the Issues Likely to Provoke Future Wars and the Fomenting and “Permissive Factors” That Increase Their Probabil-Ity. It Will Examine Possible Changes in the Means of Waging Wars, the Impact of Future Wars on Health, and Some Factors That Constrain Wars and Offer Alternatives. This Rather Dark Prognosis is Sketched in the Hope That, Looking Ahead, We Will Develop More Enlightened Policies to Change This Trajectory. [REVIEW]
Victor W. Sidel, War has an Enormous and Tragic Impact—Both Directly and Indi-Rectly—on Health. War Causes Death and Disability; Destroys Fam-Ilies, Communities, and the Environment; Diverts Resources; Destroys Infrastructure That Supports Human Health; Violates Human Rights; and Begets Further Violence (Levy and Sidel 2008).
