From the Publisher
Offering a distinctly Asia-Pacific-oriented perspective to one of the most discussed components of international security policy, human security, this volume of essays by internationally renowned experts assesses countries that have either spearheaded this form of security politics (Japan and Australia) or have recently advanced to become a key player on various aspects of human security in both a domestic and global context (China). The authors provide an interesting investigation into the continued relevance and promise of the human security paradigm against more 'traditional' security approaches. Accordingly, the book appeals to readers across a wide band of the social sciences (international relations, security studies, development studies and public policy) and to practitioners and analysts working in applied settings.
