Sustainable Human Security addresses the systemic and inter-generational capacity for the protection and promotion of human survival (freedom from fear), human development (freedom from want), human dignity (freedom from shame), and human sustainability (freedom from vulnerability). This volume explores sustainable solutions and systemic issues in relation to human security and corruption. The selected articles from the International Journal of Sustainable Human Security (IJSHS) offer relevant theoretical and valuable practical insights into the complex relations of these topics at the international level. Authors present Latin American, European, American, Asian, African, and Middle Eastern perspectives on corruption issues and anti-corruption solutions. The notion of sustainable human security is illustrated in its historical evolution and relevance to international development, human rights, private companies, good governance, and accountability systems.
