The failure of the US-led coalition to achieve its stated objectives of removing the threat of terror illustrates the ineffectiveness of the national security paradigm in addressing the principal sources of insecurity in our globalizing, post 9/11 world. However, the concept of 'human security', which seeks to replace the state with the individual as the primary locus of security, remains vague, conceptually fuzzy and difficult to put into practice. In an effort to address these limitations and to suggest ways in which the concept of human security can be protected in the light of the US-led 'war on terror', this unique volume brings together leading international scholars from Asia, Africa, Europe, and North and South America to critically examine human security in the post 9/11 environment and to suggest a new research agenda in critical human security studies. Challenging and provocative, this book is a timely contribution to understanding the post 9/11 era.
