Human Security Norms in East Asia (Security, Development and Human Rights in East Asia) by Yoichi Mine and Oscar A. Gómez
English | 2018 | ISBN: 3319972464 | 324 pages | PDF | 3,3 MB

This book reveals how the idea of human security, combined with other human-centric norms, has been embraced, criticized, modified and diffused in East Asia (ASEAN Plus Three). Once we zoom in to the regional space of East Asia, we can see a kaleidoscopic diversity of human security stakeholders and their values. Asian stakeholders are willing to engage in the cultural interpretation and contextualization of human security, underlining the importance of human dignity in addition to freedom from fear and from want. This dignity element, together with national ownership, may be the most important values added in the Asian version of human security.
