These two books result from the project Human Security and Natural Disasters, jointly undertaken by the UNU Institute for Sustainability and Peace (UNU-ISP; now part of UNU-IAS) and Waseda University. This work has also served as the foundation for a new UNU-IAS project, the Fukushima Global Communication Programme, which applies the human security approach specifically to the nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant.
