2007: Defining and Delivering Human Security

The 2007 issue of PRAXIS examines the enterprise called human security and critiques some of its core institutions. The articles in this issue discuss the definition of human security, challenges in delivering aid to HIV/AIDS victims and to refugees, and the successes and failures of international human rights law institutions such as the Special Court in Sierra Leone and the International Criminal Court in The Hague. We hope that you enjoy these thought-provoking articles and are motivated to take part in the debate on how to deliver human security.
