Human security aims to address the root causes of today’s crises, ensuring the rights and needs of people, and addressing the root causes of conflict: citizens who live with dignity and have hope for their future rarely take up arms or join extremist movements. The Alliance for Peacebuilding’s Director of Human Security, Lisa Schirch, has spearheaded a comprehensive, three-year project culminating in a first-ever handbook and online training curriculum, along with a compilation of case studies illustrating successful civil-military collaborations, and a policy brief outlining key guidelines for policymakers.
