Human Security Report Project


Human Security Report Project

The Human Security Report Project is a research group based at Simon Fraser University's School for International Studies. Its mandate is to make accessible to the policy and research communities, media, educators and the interested public research on the causes and consequences of global and regional trends in political violence. In all of its work, the Project takes the narrow definition of Human Security.

The Projects most notable publications include the widely cited [Human Security Report 2005: [http://www.humansecurityreport.org/index.php?option=content&task=view&id=34&Itemid=69 The HSR In the News] (accessed May 25, 2008). ] Human Security Report 2005 that provided conclusive evidence of a large decline in the number of wars, genocides and human rights abuse over the past decade.
