Human Security and the Next Generation of Comprehensive Human Development Goals

DEBATE: Sussex Development Debate hosted by IDS

IDS, May 2012

A new Institute of Development Studies paper is proposing that human security principles should be used to develop a post 2015 framework.

Gabriele Koehler, who earlier wrote the CROP Poverty Brief "The MDGs and Social Policy Innovations from South Asia", has co-authored the paper with Des Gasper, Richard Jolly and Mara Simane.

"The current MDGs were a good starting point, but they did not go far enough. We need a more sophisticated and inclusive approach that reflects the massive insecurities that have affected the world since 2000. As our paper sets out in more detail, a post 2015 framework could be underpinned by human security principles, and must be explicit on human rights and the need for bold policy thinking around the development vision", Koehler said at the launch of the paper.
