Inadequate technical cooperation on problems
Other Names: Inadequate technical advice and consultation on problems
Nature: Obstacles to technical cooperation include ideological conflicts, rivalry between nations, psycho-linguistic and cultural differences, lack of agreement on problem priorities and lack of budgets to facilitate sustained international collaborative work.
Claim: Even if all the foregoing obstacles were overcome, the world would still be left with technicians and specialists advocating the exclusive superiority of their own disciplines and approaches. Technical cooperation on problems is only achieved in a transitory manner, usually during severe crises.
Problem Type: F: Fuzzy exceptional problems
