BeschreibungThe quest for human security is a defining issue of our times. The international human rights norms define the content of human security. In the contemporary world, it is of the utmost importance to understand the linkages between human rights and human security. The relationship between freedom and security is also a central issue of our times. This is the first book ever to trace the links between human rights and human security. It provides answers to a key question: How does the protection of human rights in the contemporary world contribute to human security and how can one strengthen protection in the future?

Pressestimmen'"The protection of human rights is the fundamental challenge of our times. This applies to economic, social and cultural rights, as well as civil and political rights. The message must permeate all societies that the raison d'jtre of governance is to allow human beings to realize the fullness of their potential in dignity, equality and freedom. As will be seen from the present volume, the Office of High Commissioner has taken shape in all these areas. For most of my time as High Commissioner, I have had at my side the support and the friendship of BR who, by presenting different parts of the activities of the Office, helps us to see it as a living, dynamic institution.'
From the Foreword by Mary Robinson.
'"As first High Commissioner for Human Rights, I consider this book as an important and comprehensive analysis of the first 7 years of the Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights. [Mr. Ramcharan possesses a unique perspective as a human rights authority and currently as an Assistant Secretary-General and Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights. His book sheds new light into the difficult beginnings of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, its early attempts to create a solid foundation for practical action as well as its most recent successes under the leadership of my able successor Ms. Mary Robinson.'
From the Foreword by Josi Ayala-Lasso
