Now in its third decade, Praxis provides a platform for cutting-edge research that explores the links between the theory and practice of human security. Together with the Leir Institute for Human Security at The Fletcher School, the journal explores the intersections between the historically separate fields of humanitarianism, development, human rights, and conflict resolution.
Human security brings together the concerns and practices that deal with “freedom from fear” and “freedom from want.” This covers a broad range of issues and practices, but they all share three main analytic components: (1) person-centered, focusing on views of security from the ground up rather than the top down; (2) multi-dimensional, requiring both an interdisciplinary approach and one that integrates all voices and perspectives; and (3) preventive, choosing to look at root causes and early indicators to be pro-active rather than reactive to threat.
The journal is committed to promoting many voices, including academics, practitioners, stakeholders, and end-users from different backgrounds and parts of the world.
The Journal welcomes articles from a wide range of geographic and disciplinary practitioners and Praxis is now accepting submissions to be published in the Web Edition throughout the year, as well as the Summer 2019 Print Edition.
