Example text

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.
