Abstract

The present paper explores how the concept of Human Security can be approached through phenomenology. First, two phenomenological studies dealing with perceptions of short, mid, and long term threats and structural violence are reviewed and analyzed. A brief literature review dealing with Human Security reveals a dearth of studies from a phenomenological perspective. Finally, a research plan for the study of Human Security is provided so as to show how an interdisciplinary paradigm usually studied from a critical or constructivist perspective can also be approached from a phenomenological point of view. The paper concludes that phenomenology can fill an important gap between theory and practice in terms of finding the link between individual perceptions of Human Security and critical studies of both underdevelopment and structural violence.
