Human security: The public management of private agency

  • Duffield, Mark R (Principal Investigator)

Project Details


Human security is understood as prioritising the security of people rather than that of states. Instead of examining human security as a measurable condition, this research focuses on how ideas of human security facilitate the way that Southern populations are understood, differentiated and acted upon by Northern institutions. Of special interest is how human security as a relation of governance has continued to evolve within the war on terrorism. In particular, how the war on terrorism is refocusing developmental resources on those sub-populations, regions and issues regarded as important for homeland security.
