Human Security Report Project joins Simon Fraser University
This Report was produced by the Human Security Report Project (HSRP) which was located at the Human Security Centre, Liu Institute for Global Issues, University of British Columbia from February 2002 to May 2007. The HSRP subsequently moved to the School for International Studies, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver. Any queries about this Report should be addressed to: hsrp@sfu.ca or 778 782 5202.

       The first Human Security Report documents a dramatic, but largely unknown, decline in the number of wars, genocides and human rights abuse over the past decade. Published by Oxford University Press, the Report argues that the single most compelling explanation for these changes is found in the unprecedented upsurge of international activism, spearheaded by the UN, which took place in the wake of the Cold War.
