Human Security and International Law: The Challenge of Non-state Actors

Abstract

In 1994, the United Nations Development Programme coined the term ‘human security’. It approached ‘security’ from a holistic perspective. Human security discourses have continually emphasised the central role of States as providers of human security. This volume challenges this paradigm, and highlights the part played by non-state actors in both threatening human security and also in rescuing or providing relief to those whose human security is endangered
