Wer langsam geht, kommt weit – Ein halbes Jahrhundert Schweizer Entwicklungshilfe

Historian René Holenstein, who also works for the SDC, has studied the Agency’s half-century record as a provider of development assistance. His book outlines the SDC’s underlying principles and objectives, its approach to development cooperation, and considers the actors. In addition, reports on the experience of fifteen people who have been involved in Swiss development cooperation give an insight into their personal motivation and, in many different ways, their commitment in various areas of deployment. The author is publishing this book in a personal capacity.
