This chapter examines the origins in the concept of
individual security, discussions surrounding its deﬁnition
and scope, a number of the threats to human secureness
in the world today, and international attempts to promote human security. It proceeds in four parts. The section, ‘What can be human security? ', footprints the origin
and evolution of the concept, and examines competitive deﬁnitions offered by scholars and policy-makers. Another section testimonials debates and controversies
regarding human reliability, especially over the analytic
and policy significance of the idea, and the wide-ranging and

thin meanings from the concept (‘freedom from fear'
versus ‘freedom from want'). The third section examines a number of the threats to human protection today. While the concept of human security has a
wide range of dangers, due to deficiency of space, this section
will focus on the trends in informed conﬂicts along with
the interrelationship between conﬂict and other non-violent threats to human security, such as lower income, disease, and environmental destruction. The ﬁnal section evaluates the worldwide community's attempts to promote human being security and concludes simply by identifying the challenges to promoting the idea of individual

The concept of human protection represents a strong, but
controversial, attempt by sections of the educational and
coverage community to redeﬁne and broaden the meaning of security. Traditionally, reliability meant security of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of states from
external armed forces threats. This is the substance of the
notion of ‘national security', which centered security research and policy-making during the cold war period.
In the 1970s and 1980s, educational literature about security,
addressing the Middle East oil turmoil and the developing awareness of throughout the world environmental destruction, began to imagine security in broader, nonmilitary terms.
However, the state continued to be the object of security, or the entity that may be to be shielded. The concept of human being security
issues the state-centric notion of security simply by focusing
within the individual while the main referent object of security.
Individual security is approximately security for the people, rather
than of says or government authorities. As such, they have generated
much debate. Authorities wonder if such an strategy
would expand the boundaries of reliability studies an excessive amount of,
and whether ‘securitizing' the person is the best approach to address the challenges facing the worldwide community from the forces of globalization. On the other hand, advocates of human protection ﬁnd the notion to be
an important step forward in highlighting the risks
to human safety and survival carried by poverty, disease,
environmental stress, human legal rights abuses, and
armed conﬂict. These arguments notwithstanding, the
concept of man security records a growing realization
that, within an era of rapid the positive effect, it must...
