Human Security — HSEM F609-UX1

Course Dates
74034 2021-08-23 to 2021-12-11 This course introduces and reviews the major elements of human security. The term 'human security' provides a human-centric approach to understanding, enhancing and sustaining the security of the individual, as well as our families, communities and nation. A human-centric framework shifts the lens from viewing man-made and natural security challenges -- such as 9/11, the Boston Marathon bombing, Hurricane Katrina, and Avian Flu and Ebola -- as event -- or government-centric. Students will examine traditional security influencers, such as public and mental health, climate change, population and pathogen migration, side by side with traditional national and homeland security. The essential question addressed in this course: by focusing on people as the core-- holistically, in terms of cause, effect and a change-agents-- do people become solution-enablers rather than objects demanding security and response resources?
