Inclusive security: conceptualized
In this piece, inclusive security is treated as an aspect of human security. At the heart of human security lies the relation between the state qua body politic and its citizens. Human security and state security are not mutually exclusive. They always depend on and complement each other. The Commission on Human Security's report Human Security Now has stressed that human security and state security are mutually reinforcing and interdependent, that without the one, the other cannot be attained.
