That is the concept underlying Human Security, an approach which has been adopted by the UN General Assembly for UN programs worldwide. It puts the individual at the centre of security planning, aiming to meet their basic needs and confront the causes of their fears.
Each year Caux conferences bring together people active in this struggle. Some come from countries under authoritarian rule, others from emerging or established democracies. At Caux everyone has the opportunity to share their own experience, and learn from others. The agenda is shaped by the situations they face.
The conference will also focus on a challenging aspect of governance – the wounded memories which, unhealed, undermine every attempt to sustain peace. Many people have found Caux a safe environment in which to bring these wounds into the open, and develop an agenda for healing.
