This unit aims to develop understanding of key human security issues in contemporary world politics. Attention is given to the securitization of issues such as refugees, the environment and health in foreign policy, with an emphasis on the challenge to states' security in the post Cold War world. The unit will examine how the state and international organisations attempt to resolve human security crises. In particular, the unit aims to link human security issues with public policy frameworks by focussing on the role of government, NGOs and public opinion.
