Human Security in Theory and Practice: Application of the Human Security Approach and the United Nations Trust Fund for Human Security

Prepared as a guide for practitioners who wish to integrate the added value of the human security approach into their work, this handbook provides an overview of the human security approach and its operational impact. Useful tools for applying the human security approach, including a step-by step strategy for developing, implementing and evaluating human security programmes and projects are provided. Two detailed case studies, one in post-conflict situations and another related to food insecure scenarios demonstrate the application of the human security tools.
