The Significance of the ‘Human Security’ Paradigm in International Politics
The main aspect of human security is considered to have changed from being state focused agenda to an individually focused agenda in security scholarship. Nevertheless, the topic of human security is quite multifaceted and demands caution when analysed in different contexts. This essay will examine the importance of human security in contemporary international politics. For this purpose, it is vital to determine the boundaries of prospective analysis. This paper will draw a line between human security as a concept and as a paradigm Bergman, , p. The concept approach will discuss the core constituencies of human security as a possible research and analytical framework as well as focus on debates depicting scopes and flaws of this concept.
Security will be interpreted as: security of people, not just territory. Security of individuals, not just nations. Security through development, not through arms. Security of all the people everywhere — in their homes, in their jobs, in their streets, in their communities, in their environment. The logic behind its introduction and advocation was clear: the realist, state-centric paradigm of security that championed the primacy of territorial integrity over that of the individual, seemed increasingly anachronistic in a world where states no longer faced the existential threat that nuclear stand-off had perpetuated UN, ; Jolly and Ray, ; Debiel and Werthes,
A Critical Evaluation of the Concept of Human Security
Human Security: The what and the why. Human security is concerned with safeguarding and expanding people's vital freedoms. It requires both protecting people from critical and pervasive threats and empowering people to take charge of their own lives. Protection refers to the norms, policies and institutions essential to shield people and implies a 'top-down approach', such as the rule of law and democratic governance. Empowerment underscores the role of people as actors and participants and implies a 'bottom-up' approach.
Human security is an emerging paradigm for understanding global vulnerabilities whose proponents challenge the traditional notion of national security through military security by arguing that the proper referent for security should be at the human rather than national level. Human security reveals a people-centred and multi-disciplinary understanding of security which involves a number of research fields, including development studies , international relations , strategic studies, and human rights [ clarification needed ]. The United Nations Development Programme 's Human Development Report  is considered a milestone publication in the field of human security, with its argument that ensuring " freedom from want " and " freedom from fear " for all persons is the best path to tackle the problem of global insecurity. Critics of the concept argue that its vagueness undermines its effectiveness,  that it has become little more than a vehicle for activists wishing to promote certain causes, and that it does not help the research community understand what security means or help decision makers to formulate good policies. Thus understood, human security would no longer be the vague amorphous add-on to harder edged areas of security such as military security or state security. In order for human security to challenge global inequalities, there has to be cooperation between a country's foreign policy and its approach to global health. However, the interest of the state has continued to overshadow the interest of the people.

Like its sister concepts, human security has the characteristic of universality: it is applicable to individuals everywhere.

У него никогда не возникало сомнений по поводу того, кто убьет Танкадо. Танкадо находился в Испании, а Испания - вотчина Халохота.
