about us

Human Security Collective (HSC) is a foundation based in The Hague working on issues of development, security and the involvement of citizens in their communities and societies. We believe that the idea of Human Security with its focus on people, relationships and human rights provides an organizing frame for action. Based on the elements of trust-creation, local ownership, empowerment and collective action, we facilitate conversation between civil society, policy shapers and other actors to promote alternative approaches to current security practice.

Our Role

To bridge the gap between people and security by involving citizens and communities in decision-making in the security domain, and protecting and expanding the operational and political space of civil society.

We are working towards

Creating a just and secure world in which people are able to speak, connect, associate and assemble freely and fearlessly.
