Human Security Collective (HSC) is a foundation based in The Hague working on issues of development, security and the involvement of citizens in their communities. We believe that the idea of human security, which is a holistic, people-centered approach rooted in human rights, provides an organizing frame for action. In our work, we address the current asymmetric character of decision-making in the domain of security by ensuring multi-stakeholder dialogue and engagement, and protecting and expanding the operational and political space of civil society. HSC’s youth leadership programs take an approach which, with its elements of local ownership, trust-creation and empowering of agents for positive change within communities, strengthen a new generation of leadership that promotes critical thinking, gender parity, collective action and engagement with the security sector to strengthen social cohesion.
