Abstract

This stimulating book stipulates the evolution of humanitarian intervention and her idea on human security as a paradigm. It also includes essays that explained the impact of globalization on the emerging shift of traditional to human security.

She regarded human security as an encompassing notion that includes both securitization and development. Further, this new paradigm involves interrelated types of security from health, economic, political to environment. She doesn’t want to use the term humanitarian intervention because according to him it’s a narrow way of looking human security by calculating threats and often not successful for crisis management and human development.
