In all countries, people face multiple challenges to welfare, safety and freedom: human security studies provide a deeper understanding of such threats, and contribute to effective responses.
Human Security Challenges aims to inform readers concerned with global poverty and exclusion, especially those who may be living or working in challenging environments. It addresses issues of the environment, complex poverty, disasters and conflict; it also explains the concept of 'human security' and its contribution to contemporary international affairs.
Indian scholar and activist Manish Jha notes:
'Human Security Challenges is an invaluable addition to the existing literature on human security. Hunter squarely deals with the issues and concerns of poverty, exclusion, welfare and development through a human security perspective. I am sure this e-book will be of enormous use for practitioners as well as academicians and scholars engaged in this field.'
Leading UK human security specialist David Roberts of Loughborough University writes:
'Hunter's Human Security Challenges opens the subject up in a very accessible language for the beginner; but it also interrogates it critically. For the more advanced reader, whether experienced scholar or undergraduate student, it is a refreshingly clear expression of a complex debate. It is a very useful summation of the whole of the debate, saving readers much time in bringing themselves up to speed with the relevant material, which is so widely dispersed; and it treats these debates with sophistication, sensitivity and maturity whilst remaining open, accessible and unintimidating. I'd recommend it as the best introduction to Human Security I've seen.'
