Information on the conference:
The concept and practices of human security, the responsibility to protect (R2P) and protection of civilians (POC), which have common purposes to secure individual freedom from fear, have been developed and applied in numerous cases over decades. However, increasing numbers of people still face a variety of threats, including armed conflicts and terrorist attacks coupled with famine, pandemic diseases and displacement. In most cases, these people are left without protection from their own states. There is a growing demand to revisit the origin of the human security concept and explore feasible prescriptions to save human lives trapped in conflict zones. This conference will examine the reality and nature of on-going conflicts and attempt to untangle the relationships of the existing concepts and practices regarding civilian protection with an aim to discuss what are practical and applicable measures to ensure human security in conflict zones.

Topics:
・Development and empowerment
・Natural and manmade disasters
・Human security and dignity
・Theoretical and empirical studies on human security
・Japanese foreign policy and human security*
*The conference language is English. However, the panel on Japanese foreign policy will be conducted in Japanese.
