Human Security in the United Nations

Japan Center for International Exchange

This report is the product of a study on Human Security in the United Nations that examined five projects funded by the UN Trust Fund for Human Security. The research team conducted interviews with officers in UN headquarters and in field offices who are involved in the design and implementation of the target projects, as well as with local stakeholders in all of the projects. The fieldwork was conducted from November 24 through December 12, 2003, in four countries: Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and East Timor. The studies were then analyzed in an attempt to propose common elements to be included in human security projects on the ground as well as to highlight the challenges faced by people designing and implementing human security projects.
