Simultaneous interpretation offered

KFAW Foreign Correspondents reported each country’s situation of “human security” and efforts to it from a point of gender-related view. Then they discussed with participating citizens based on the presentation. After the seminar, presenters and citizens made an exchange meeting.

Human Security refers to a situation in which basic human rights and freedom are secured, people are free from fear of threat; and people can live with dignity pursuing love, culture and their belief.
