Human Security in Theory and Practice
The concept of Human Security has emerged in the post-Cold War world of the 1990’s and has been further developed by the UNDP as well as Canada and Japan. It is a concept which is now well established as a political leitmotif, but which, ever since his first appearance, has provoked a lot of criticism in the academic world. Within this project, the research on Human Security focuses on its links with Global Governance and on the development of the approach regarding concepts of Environmental and Sustainable Security. The project also evaluates the implications of a Human Security approach for policy instruments and political projects, like international sanctions or the ban on antipersonnel mines.
