INTR 4005: African Human Security in an International Context (Dr A Lamin)
The nature of security around the world has changed to include not just armed conflict but also disease, environmental disasters, and political and economic upheaval. This is particularly true of the African continent where civil conflicts, the AIDS pandemic, poverty, environmental degradation and numerous other factors have taken their toll. The response of the international community to these complex humanitarian emergencies is informed by a spectrum of approaches, from preventive initiatives and people-centred conflict resolution and peace-building activities to intervention to protect populations at great risk. Hence the unit will explore the structures, institutions and substantive issues related to Human Security, particularly in Africa.
