Human security – evolution and revolution
Human security includes two important categories – one developed around some elementary needs, such as the necessity of food and medical care, and the other one based on the protection against certain elements that may negatively affect social life. Based on these relationships seven elements specifically related to the concept of human security have been identified: economic security, food security, health security, environment security, personal security, security of the community to which the individual belongs, and political security. Human security makes a contribution to the security of States, adds a new dimension to human development and strengthens human rights. It makes a contribution to the security of States because it is focused on persons and takes into account the risks that are not considered as such by the States. At the same time, it makes a contribution to human development by increasing social equity and by decreasing insecurity factors. The objectives of human security therefore are to free the human person from fear and needs as well as develop the human being.
