Second Generation Human Security: Reflections on Globalisation and Intervention by Mary Kaldor
Second-generation human security focuses on implementation, especially in difficult places. The lecture will briefly outline the evolution of human security and make the case for a form of intervention that is neither classic war-fighting (e.g. air strikes), nor top-down peace talks, but focuses on bottom-up approaches to dampening down violence and protecting people.
