This book, now available in paperback, traces the key evolutions in the development of the concept of human security, the various definitions and critiques, how it relates to other concepts, and what it implies for polities, politics, and policy.

Human security is an important subject for the whole world, in particular Asia, as it deals with interactions among fields of social change, such as development, conflict resolution, human rights, and humanitarian assistance. In a globalizing world, in which threats become trans-national and states lose power, security can no longer be studied in a one-dimensional fashion.

Written by authors who are experts in this field and with case studies from different regions (Afghanistan, Central Asia and South Asia) presented throughout, this book - now available in paperback - contributes to this new multidimensional conception of security, analyzes its strengths and weaknesses, and focuses on its implications for analysis and action.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Human Security is a new buzz word - but what exactly does it mean, who uses it, who disagrees and what are the catches? This important book clarifies these points and much more, drawing on experience in Afghanistan and other countries in conflict of Asia and Africa and presenting perspectives tried out in the US, France and India. The book, clear and readable, is excellent for students, a quick catch up for policy makers who may not be quite sure how and when to use the concept and a challenge for all who doubt its relevance for the world today."

Sir Richard Jolly (Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex, UK)

"This critically informed study is the most intellectually balanced, grounded, and action-oriented attempt to theorise and conceptualise human security so far published."

Professor Oliver Richmond (School of International Relations, Director, Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, University of St Andrews, UK)
