"Investing in Human Security for a Future State"
The Palestinian Human Development Report 2009/10, Investing in Human Security for a Future State, argues that human security must be the foundation of a future Palestinian state. By utilizing the concept of human security, the PHDR 2009/10 calls for reconsideration of the State-building process in the oPt, involving people-centred development policies, and improved preparedness from systemic shocks, increased militancy and outside intervention. Human security is a pre-requisite for human development, and its widespread absence in the oPt has greatly impeded Palestinian progress.
