About Human Security

Human security is in response to widespread and cross-cutting threats. These threats can spread rapidly within and across nations and give rise to more intractable crises that seriously challenge both Governments and people. At the same time, human security underscores the universality and interdependence of a set of freedoms that are fundamental to human life.
