Human Security Research Center

Director: Dragana Dulić, Ph.D., full professor

Human Security Research Center is an organizational unit based at the Faculty of Security. This center examines human security as the increasingly non-military and multidimensional understanding of various threats to human society. Its goal is to turn theoretical insights into practical recommendations for policy-making and to develop means which will help decision-makers in local, national and multilateral government and non-government organizations and at all levels of governing structures of society and economy.

Basic activities:

  • research (projects, networks, drafting of official documents and strategic framework)
  • training (of social and humanitarian workers, court staff, employees of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, military officers, legal experts, cooperation experts working in countries in conflict or emerging form it, and employees at all levels of governing structures of society and economy)
  • organization of conferences and expert counseling
  • publication of the international magazine "Ljudska bezbednost/Human Security" and other publications
  • constantly providing the employees at the Center and students with current domestic and international news on events such as conferences, on the possibility of getting grants and internships, the presentation of the magazine, etc.

The activities of the Center focus on issues of human security and the possibilities and limitations encountered by international organizations. Changes on the international scene, which represent the framework for this program, include: the extension of the definition of security in the Post Cold-War era; the expansion of multilateral programs set up to cover numerous aspects of conflict theory, conflict management, theoretical and applied strategy, conflict relief in domestic wars, as well as facing new security challenges in general; the promotion of the normative agenda reflected in the increasing importance given to the promotion of human rights, to multi-party democracy and "good government", as well as to the growing number of new forms of humanitarian activities in conflicts and wars and to the expanding role of the private sector and NGOs through a series of interaction with the international organizations.

The activities of the Center focus on the interdependent global system, identifying common interests and working in the interest of general security. The aim of Center's projects will be to promote the security culture of peace and will be realized in cooperation with regional and international participants.
