Lena C. Endresen and Signe Gilen illustrate how in the Interim Agreement of 1995, Israel and the PLO agreed to cooperate on a people-to-people programme in accordance with concepts developed together with Norway. The Israeli-Palestinian People-to-People Programme, facilitated by the government of Norway and the Norwegian non-governmental Fafo Institute for Applied Social Science, has operated since. The programme challenges contemporary peace-building theories as it represents a blurring of the borders between the realms of state and civil society, and between peace-making and peace-building. This article describes how Fafo, operator of the People-to-People Secretariat, has designed a programme structure that seeks to ensure consultation and consensus at all programme decision levels.Development (2000) 43, 29–33. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110165
