Otros detalles del evento:
The notion of human security first appeared as a post-Cold War attempt to transform the traditional understanding of security – framed in purely state-centric and militaristic terms – into a more comprehensive concept having as ultimate referent object the individual. Stemming from the acknowledgement of the complex character of contemporary violence, human security focuses on the protection of individual lives and recognizes that threats to human security can arise in non-military contexts and from sources other than the military.
