The book brings a gender sensitive approach into the discourse and practice on human security in Bangladesh and Pakistan. It provides an intellectual understanding of the concept of gendered human security through a synthesis of academic discourse and scholarship, good practices and policies. It also contributes to the building of standards and norms of measuring human security. In doing so, the book ventures into developing a conceptual basis for the rationale behind the need for a separate framework for women’s insecurity. This, the authors suggest can be achieved through the introduction of the issue of (direct and structural) violence against women into the framework.

The authors explain that this is needed because the emphasis in the indicators used by different indices varies, and often ignores the direct threats and the structural discrimination women encounter in their everyday life.
Therefore, the concept of human security in the book is grounded in the lived experiences of people, both men and women. The book is strongly recommended to policy makers, social anthropologists and academics, particularly those in gender sensitive disciplines.

Saba Gul Khattak, a former Executive Director and presently a Visiting Fellow at the Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI), Islamabad.

Kiran Habib is a Research Associate at SDPI since 2003. Her primary interest is in gender issues. Her works include: women’s land rights, gendered human security, peace and conflict, trafficking in women and children, violence against women, Afghan refugees, women and peace, education and child workers.
