Human Security and Development Nexus: A Case Study of Pakistan
Author: Abdul Baseer

This study titled as ‘Human Security and Development Nexus: A Case Study of Pakistan’ aims at analyzing the relationship of human development and threat perception of security in Pakistan. And the applicability of human security and its prioritization in the national security of Pakistan. The study is conducted with the help of qualitative research strategy and case study research design. Furthermore, the research used interviews to chart out the place and applicability of human security in the security apparatus of the country. It concludes that consideration of this relationship is weak in Pakistan where the traditional approaches still have a strong hold. The development and security both are not comprehensive in nature, where people are becoming burden on state. This nexus needs prioritization in Pakistan’s national security policy. This prioritization is termed in the ‘securitization theory’ as securitization. Which if stressed, would result in real human development for people in areas of education and health. Therefore, the study recommends a people inclusive national security approach. Supervisor:- Dr. Muhammad Jehangir Khan
