Putting People at the Centre: Human Security Issues in Asia
By Anuradha M. Chenoy
The concept of national security is about the means that states use for the maintenance of territorial integrity, internal cohesion and political order. The protection and enhancement of individual and communal human rights is the starting point in the alternative paradigm of the human security concept. This has evolved into 'a life of dignity' and encompasses security, development and human rights.
Putting People at the Centre
has brought together writers qualified in their respective fields of involvement especially in the promotion and projection of concerns, issues and programmes involving human security in their own countries.
