The concept of ‘human security’ has initiated the debate – what ‘security’ means and how to achieve it. The varied notions and concepts of human security initiated an interesting debate. Justice, equality and human dignity are the watch words of human rights discourse and intimately connected with human security. But the inequity of the international economic order has produced unacceptable levels of inequality, both internally and internationally.

The concept of 'human security' has been defined and pursued in different ways by different nation states as a means of reducing the human costs of violent conflicts, as a strategy to enable governments to address basic human needs and offset the inequities of globalization, and as a means to provide social safety nets to impoverished, marginalized people.

Going beyond ‘security’ in the military or political context, human security also requires environmental, resource and livelihood security. Security and Equality are prerequisites for stability and sustainability. Anthropology and the social sciences have a vital role to play in clarifying and developing principles, norms, rules and institutions to undertake action towards such an understanding of security, and in participating in the dialogue among citizens and policy makers.

The papers included in this volume presented in an international conference seek to create a platform for interdisciplinary research with cross-cultural data  to contribute to transformations to a sustainable world. Anthropology with its holistic approach is well positioned to address some of these challenges and may contribute to a more just world order.
