Living without Security

In this video, the speaker looks at what happens when security is absent, distinguishing between security as a condition, and security as a set of organizations. He notes that throughout the human history, there were no security structures as they exist today, but that security, nonetheless, was still provided, as it is today in places where the state is absent or ineffective. He further explains the destructive effects of liberalism on traditional security provision, and the consequences of the failure of replacement structures imported from the West.

What is Security?

In this video, David Chuter discusses the problems of defining security, and the way that different organisations and interest groups try to define it in ways that suit their objectives. He also proposes a straightforward and relatively limited definition of security, and then to look at the three levels at which it is provided, from security in against harm or loss in everyday life, through the control of territory, up to protection of national borders and interests.

Conflict Related Sexual Violence Training Video

Conflict related sexual violence has a direct or indirect link to conflict or post-conflict settings and other situations of concern, and can constitute war crimes, crimes against humanity and acts of torture or genocide.

CRSV is an abhorrent crime used as a tactic of war for military, political and economic reasons and continues to be a feature of conflicts today, claiming thousands of victims every year. It is used to punish, terrorize, intimidate, control and displace civilians and, in the process, destroy the social fabric of communities.

Survivors of CRSV often experience severe physical and psychological health challenges exacerbated by a lack of medical facilities.
