What is Human Security Collective about?
Human Security Collective (HSC) is a foundation with a strong background in Development, Conflict Transformation and Security. HSC bridges the gap between people and security. We address the asymmetric character of decision-making in the domain of security by ensuring multi-stakeholder engagement, and protect and expand the operational and political space of civil society.
HSC connects local human security with global security, engages civil society with important security agendas on conflict prevention, counter terrorism and de-radicalization. It enables governments to build meaningful and trustful engagement and partnership with civil society on security matters. HSC is a hub and facilitates a network of civil society leaders working on a broad spectrum of security-related issues.
NEW PROGRAMME LAUNCHED
