Plenary Session I (15:00 -17:00)   @ Room 163

"Reconceptualizing Human Security"

Aim of this Session:

There is a growing momentum to reconsider human security (HS), from the practical demands arising from COVID-19 pandemic, the situations in Myanmar or Afghanistan, and the Russian invasion to Ukraine, which undermine international order and HS, as well as evidenced by the publication of a special report on HS, New Threats to Human Security in the Anthropocene: Demanding Greater Solidarity, by the UNDP in 2022, the release of Human Security Today: Revisiting Human Security by the JICA Ogata Research Institute, and the anticipated incorporation of HS principles into the revision of Japan's Official Development Assistance (ODA) guidelines. Taking into account both practical and theoretical demands, the keynote speech and panel discussions aim to provide an opportunity to fundamentally discuss HS once again.
