New Approaches to International Development

Volume XXVII, 2012

Human security encompasses the varied yet deeply tied fields of human rights, humanitarian assistance, international development, and conflict resolution, and it encourages both practitioners and theoreticians to consider the linkages between each. PRAXIS is first and foremost a journal rooted in academic discourse, but it keeps one ear firmly to the ground to examine how particular laws, policies, and practices impact individuals at a local level. In this twenty-seventh edition of PRAXIS, we focus on new approaches to international development, providing a timely compilation of articles that review the implications of these new trends on individuals and provide prescriptions for the way forward.
