A Certificate Track for Just Governance for Human Security

What does it mean to have freedom from fear and want?

Human security is not about arms. It is a resolve towards life and human dignity. It concerns people everywhere and from all walks of life. And while the threats to human security may differ, its pillars all over the world are the same: Good Governance, Inclusive Economics, Sustainability, Social Inclusion, Healing Memory, and Food Security.

 

 

What is humansecurityX?

humansecurityX is a training programme and certificate track launched in 2017 as part of the Caux Forum event Just Governance for Human Security. It is meant to guide its Fellows toward a deeper understanding of the following questions:

  • What does ‘freedom from fear and want’ mean?
  • What are the Six Pillars of Human Security?
  • What threats do they face?

 

Why humansecurityX?

humansecurityX is an excellent option for any participant attending the Just Governance for Human Security event, interested in diving deeper into human security issues. The program provides:

  • A foundation for understanding the principle of human security and its six pillars, the practice of its application and the threats which it faces around the world.
  • A hands-on training programme for individuals and groups, providing practical skills in conflict resolution, whistle-blowing, and advocacy for human security and human rights.
  • A platform for deeper discussions relating to the conference’s themes, throughout and beyond the Just Governance for Human Security event.
 

 

 

How is humansecurityX structured? 

humansecurityX is designed as an auto-directed training course that Fellows can tailor to their specific interests and areas of expertise within the themes of Just Governance for Human Security. It comprises two components:

  • General events and workshops open to all participants of Just Governance for Human Security
  • Lectures and closed circle discussions exclusive to humansecurityX Fellows

To complete the program, Fellows are required to attend:

  • The humansecurityX Seminar Lecture on the theories and application of human security and the Fellows’ Lunch
  • The daily Power Breakfasts with high-profile guest lecturers
  • All 5 plenaries of the Just Governance for Human Security event
  • At least 1 session pertaining to conference’s yearly theme
  • At least 1 session pertaining to each of the Six Pillars of Human Security
  • At least 3, but ideally all of the morning reflections

Participants are then required to draft a one-page essay on human security and one or all of its pillars, as they apply practically in their respective countries and fields of work.

 

What’s new for humansecurityX 2018? 

This year, humansecurityX is proud to introduce new additions to its programme, exclusive to 2018 Cohort Fellows:

  • The humansecurityX Seminar and Fellows’ Lunch on the 3rd of July, 2018
  • The humansecurityX Power Breakfasts with high-profile lecturers, every morning of the conference at 8:30 a.m.
  • The Group Track, a training option for teams of non- and for-profit organizations, which provides practical skills in conflict resolution, whistle-blowing, and advocacy for human security and human rights.

By taking part in this programme, Fellows will be equipped with a deeper understanding of human security issues and a network of global citizens striving together toward the advancement of human security.
