HUMAN SECURITY JOURNAL Volume 5, Winter 2007

Emmanouil Athanasiou

The views expressed are based on the author's experience in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), mainly in the eastern areas, the provinces of North and South Kivu and Ituri. The author argues that the United Nations peacekeeping mission in DRC is, by all means, an operation based on human security, with a mandate reflecting the evolution of international practice in the field of peacekeeping, peace-building and conflict prevention.

Revue de Sécurité Humaine / Human Security Journal - Issue 1 - April 2006

Brooke Stearns

Abstract: Since the end of the Cold War, the traditional security paradigm has been insufficient. Transnational threats and internal conflicts are gaining significance within the security framework, including HIV/AIDS.
