Abstract:This paper examines the trainers, trainees and training methods of human security. Case examples are drawn from different regions around the globe, with particular emphasis on Africa and the Africa Office of the United Nations Centre for Regional Development (UNCRD) in Nairobi, Kenya. The paper explores the scope of training, national and regional approaches, the choice of training methods, including distance training, micro-credit instruction, and ICT skill acquisition. Particular attention is given to the regionalization of training in the United Nations. The initiative for much of the training in human security has taken place in the UNCRD in Nagoya, Japan. The human security training concept is relatively recent, and owes its history and practice to any number of traditional disciplines and research streams. Likewise, the sponsors and funders of training are multiple - international associations, UN member organizations, NGOs and community-based agencies, all with their own priorities and training infrastructures.
