Human security and resilience are interdisciplinary approaches to understanding global affairs. These concepts focus on the security of populations (human security) and their ability to withstand and recover from a wide array of internal and external shocks (resilience), ranging from extreme weather to terrorism and armed conflict. The concept of human security was first defined by the United Nations Development Programme in 1994.
Whether due to environmental changes, global relations, international business, or technology advancements, security is often an issue. You’re the type of person who cares about the good of humanity and seeks solutions to not only ensure safety after a catastrophe, but to help identify and prevent future incidences.
