The new international status quo resulted from the end og the Cold War has broadened tthe definition of "security". No longer does "security" pertian only to "nations", a theme best epitomized by the concept of "human security".
The concept of human security, however, has been under attack for its lack of clarity regarding "whose" security it aims to analyze. This article tackles this problem by probing into the applicability of the concept on the migration issue. It focuses on the case of illegal immigrants attempting to enter the European Union (EU) from Africa. Its findings show that there is little problem with applying the concept of human security on imgration.
Nevertheless, even though the EU has readily incorporated the concept into its foreign policies, it will be a long way before the concept can play any role in the EU's handling of the migration issue.
