The concept of human security, under clear analysis, oﬀers no rigid explanation about where the responsibility exists and what methods are needed to handle security threats to people. It only suggests a possible shift of our point of view in security considerations from state to people, which subsequently necessitates reviewing the scope of security. The notion of human security itself thus does not provide the answers to these questions unless deﬁned by those who attempt to put human security in practice.
However, this point needs to be examined in a more speciﬁc context to identify what exactly causes such redundancy and what prevents ﬁnding integrated solutions. The comparison between the human security notion and the existing theories of conﬂict/violence elucidate that the human security concept informs us neither how the underlying sources interrelate with each other nor what the key factors are in handling the underlying sources. It is now clear that while the human security notion can be a tool to understand conﬂicts and violence in certain cases, it is not suﬃcient in itself due to the lack of clariﬁcation regarding the means to handle the problematic conditions that generate violence and conﬂicts.
In other words, subjective assessments on these points (who has the responsibility and what methods are necessary to handle security threats) decide how human security is conceptualized and accordingly how it is applied into practice. The notion of human security is in this sense a doubleedged sword – possibly being utilized as a political tool as well as being applied for humanitarian purposes. The ambiguities arising from the undeﬁned locus of responsibility in the human security concept are illustrated by the two distinctive approaches by Canada and Japan.
