There took place a significant change in the realm of security studies with the end of cold war.
The notion of state centric security was transformed into human centric. Two notable scholars
from Asia and in particular South Asia, Amartya Sen and Mahbub Ul- Haque pioneered the
concept of Human Security. Besides the UN Development Programme Report of 1994 also
played an important role to shape the concept of Human Security. In the context of Asia it is
pertinent to note that the autocratic tendencies of many countries have turned out to be major
threat to human security. Problems of religious and ethnic conflicts are also very much
pertinent in the region. Civil wars have also threatened human security conditions in the Asian
countries. Unemployment problems and economic insecurity among the people are increasing
at a rapid rate. Prevalence of gender discrimination in the Asian countries has resulted in gender
insecurity. Women are adversely affected due to this. The Island nations may get vanishes from
the world map due to the increase of water level which is engendered by the climate change.
Ensuring ecological security has turned out to be major challenge for the world community as
well as for the Asian countries. Narrow politics by the politicians of the countries of this region
is an obstacle to the peace, progress and development of Asia. Asia as a region faces many
challenges like terrorism, illegal migration, poverty, lack of health security, personal security
and Community security to safeguard human security conditions.
