Chatham House and the Institute for Development and Human Security, EWHA Womans University, are holding this international conference with the aim of facilitating the creation of a network of scholars and practitioners whose works relate to the central tenets of 'freedom from want and freedom from fear' while also examining the duties these entitlement rights impose upon national and international actors - not only a responsibility to protect, but also to provide.

The conference will also serve to bring the activities of the Institute for Development and Human Security (IDHS) to a wider international audience. Professor Andrew Williams, author of a new book on the relationship between security and development will open the conference with a keynote address. This will be followed by an introduction to the IDHS, then sessions on human security challenges and initiatives, emerging donors and actors, and, finally, a detailed analysis of the North Korean case across the spectrum of security approaches.
