Intro to HumanSecurity&Dvlpmnt

The focus of this course is human security, the everyday security of individuals and the communities in which they live rather than the security of states and borders. The course explores how the lack of human security affects development, broadly defined. Approaches to human security in the course include conflict analysis, management and resolution, human rights, peacebuilding, legitimate institutions and good governance, rule of law and justice, and programmes and policies designed to improve human security and lower armed violence. The central theme of the course is how these approaches are integrated in practice. Examples of this approach can be found at the following:
