Human Security: Dimensions and Potential Threats

Human Security: Dimensions and Potential Threats

ABSTRACT

The concept of Security experienced transformation in the scenery of security threats. There is a shift of focus from traditional to modern aspects of security. The 1994 Human Development Report highlighted different dimensions of human security and these different dimensions have potential threats to the life of human beings- Violent, hunger, discrimination, poverty, unemployment, political repression, human rights violation, etc.  So there is a need for change in the focus from the military perspective of state security to a novel perception of the security for human beings or the individual.   It is significant to find out the reason for such kind of threat and the implementation for such threat to human security.
