It aims to provide researchers with a searchable database of links to key websites, full-text reports, journal articles, news items and fact sheets relating to human security worldwide. Human security is defined as the protection of individuals from wars, civil wars and violence. The website enables users to search or browse by country or topic. Topics covered include: peace-keeping operations, children and armed conflict, international humanitarian law, gender and security and refugees. Each resource has an added description of content. The section on Yemen includes coverage of international security, terrorism, and human rights. It includes links to news bulletins, maps and recent academic reports from aid agencies, think tanks and NGOs. It is possible to sign up to receive RSS feed alerts when new materials are added.
