In this episode, I met with Professor Syed Mohammad Ali to discuss his course Human Security. He opens defining "human security" as a term, why it is important, and how it first took root. We then discuss theoretical concepts including human security versus that provided by the state and the Responsibility to Protect (R2P). We then go over applied concepts of human security,focusing on extremism, insurgencies, climate change, and refugees.
The Security Studies Podcast is also excited to introduce a new podcast from Alistair Sommerville at Georgetown's BMW Center for German and European Studies called “The Europe Desk."
