In this presentation, I will try to achieve 4 objectives.
I will discuss that there seems to be some emerging consensus on the scope of “Human Security.”
I will show the complementarity between the “State Security” and “Human Security.”
I will explain that a “Human Security Approach” offers us a useful framework to assess & analyze the multiple threats that vulnerable people face.
I will discuss that this multidisciplinary “Human Security Approach,” overcoming academic compartmentalization in “delivering as one,” is effective in narrowing the gap through the dual strategies of empowerment and protection.
This work was presented during the II Workshop on Medical Anthropology in Rome, on October 14th - 15th 2011.
