About the Journal

Welcome back to the Journal of Human Security & Resilience.

These continue to serve as exciting times for those within the collective of the security and emergency management space and for both academics and practitioners alike. 

A primary objective of the JHS&R is to encourage a better understanding, for the complexity of human security and to likewise ensure that knowledge is translated into practice, across our communities, in and among nations, and within our evolving global system.

Having recently taken over the reigns as the Editor-in-Chief, I want to thank Edin Mujkic for the tremendous job in getting the journal established. Those of us with interest in the realm and the complex dynamic of human security greatly appreciate his efforts and those of Steve Recca as the Managing Editor. 

Now we turn the next page in the chapter of JHS&R. Having a solid Board of Advisors and Reviewers, we now welcome Dr. Linda Kiltz in supporting our efforts as an Assistant Editor. We both are excited about the opportunity extended us and look forward to serving the community during a period of growing significance and awareness in human security affairs.

We forward to working with you — as readers and contributors — to enable the JHS&R as a venue for idea generation and informed discussion on the most pressing human security topics of today and tomorrow.

2. Focus on innovative concepts and models, strategies, technical tools, and theoretical and observational analyses and provide a platform for translational research that connects education to practice.

3. Condense state-of-the-art information essential to human security policymakers, practitioners and educators into an easily accessible online format.

4. Offer progressive ways for confronting and managing human security and resilience issues or concerns.

5. Provide a peer-reviewed venue for scholarship and debate in the broad academic areas of human security and resilience.
