This paper provides a theoretical and methodological underpinning for an alternative approach to security issues. It incorporates academic and policy papers across four topics: the tension between state-centric ‘national security’ and people-centred ‘human security’ approaches; the plethora of human security issues; the question of who is creating the narrative on security; and what methodology can be useful for future research. This paper has been produced as part of the inception phase of the Alternative Security Review, a multi-year project partnership between Rethinking Security and the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations at Coventry University.
