Overview

The past decades have seen enormous changes in our perceptions of 'security', the causes of insecurity and the measures adopted to address them. Threats of terrorism and the impacts of globalisation and mass migration have shaped our identities, politics and world views. This volume of essays analyses these shifts in thinking and, in particular, critically engages with the concept of 'human security' from legal, international relations and human rights perspectives. Contributors consider the special circumstances of non-citizens, such as refugees, migrants, and displaced and stateless persons, and assess whether, conceptually and practically, 'human security' helps to address the multiple challenges they face.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[Human Security and Non-Citizens] is to be highly recommended both for the depth of research and the interest and relevance of the subject matter. [It] serve[s] to enlighten and inform through considerable attention to documentation and careful historiographical research of the [-] literature. Given the vast remit of the volume, no article of limited length can do justice to its contents. Suffice to say that this is a vital book to read for lawyers [-], for academic researchers who wish to gain further insights, and for students who seek a general introduction to the relevant and complex issues that prevail in this new century.”
