Keywords: Security | human security | international relations | development

The present document pursues two complementary objectives. In the first place, it aims to situate the current debate on the expression “human security” and demonstrate the genesis of the different uses based not only on that of the well-known 1994 UNDP Report in which the term was coined but also on a combination of events, ideas and regulatory proposals which have emerged since 1990 in the sphere of security, peace and development. The second objective is to advocate for a limited use, not an excessively broad one, of the notion of human security, considering it to be, at the same time, a product of a syndrome and of a politico-regulatory programme.
