ABSTRACT
The field of study of security is confronted today with a proliferation of security relatedconcepts. In this regard we can mention various concepts, such as: “transnational security”, “extendedsecurity”, “human security”, “global security”, “cooperative security”, “international security”,“economic security” and many others. Ever since the end of the Cold War, the concept of humansecurity began to appear more often in the speeches of scholars, policy makers and even the media.Despite the more frequent use, the concept of human security does not have a clear definition becauseit includes a variety of issues ranging from economic security to personal and political security.Generally speaking, human security defines the overall problems and challenges a person is facedwith. This paper is focused on revealing key aspects related to the concept of human security, itsdefinitions and approaches. Furthermore, the paper presents the risks and vulnerabilities to humansecurity, thus emphasizing the challenges for this field of study.
