Despite some remarkable achievements in the socio-economic, political and scientific fields, India’s 1.5 billion people suffer from a deep sense of insecurity, marginalization, exclusion, shelterlessness and violence. The thrust of the book is on understanding the human security situation and then exploring the journey ahead towards enhancement of human security in India.

The present volume examines the case for broadening the scope of security by breaking the rigidity brought about by traditional forms of dominant state-centric and military based security concepts and their determining matrices. The main thrust of this study is on three very critical areas, viz., (i) environmental security, (ii) food security and (iii) energy security. It deals with how gains from effective management of human security parameters get translated into enhanced security both at the macro and micro levels.

Sri Lanka at independence in 1948 was an oasis of stability, peace and security. It was a shining example of parliamentary democracy in the Third World. During the 1980s, however, violent ethnic conflict, emergency rule, the manipulation of the electoral process and the erosion of the welfare safety-net transformed Sri Lanka into a highly volatile locus of ethno-political conflict with severe human security deficit. The book explores the symbiotic relationship between traditional and human security in Sri Lanka in academic as well as in practical terms.

This study narrates the context and complexity of the state-society relations in Nepal and puts the socio-economic and political situation of Nepal into perspective against the background of the emerging discourses on non-traditional security. Nepali state, which is traditionally seized by the misgovernance of its political leaderships, has never been sensitive towards the dignity of its citizenry.

This book is an attempt to bring the complexities and multiplicities of violence inflicted against women and the different dimensions of militarisation. Several issues however inform and shape the South Asian complexities with respect to women and militancy, and the book attempts to address them both theoretically and empirically. Firstly, the book looks at the challenges and contradiction. South Asia has outstanding women leaders at the state level, but violence against women and that too of varied nature is on the rise.

In positivist social sciences measurement is an important exercise in determining casual and correlational relationship. Efforts at constructing Human Security Index (HIS) picked up momentum following the introduction of Human Development Index (HDI) by the end in 1993. He provides the site for measuring the interface between the downsides of development and various levels and sources of insecurities. The traditional debate between ‘freedom from want’ and ‘freedom from fear’ is also reflected here.
