Drawing on feminist research, the author uses an inclusive approach to discuss epistemological aspects of the conceptualisation of human security. She argues for the need for a participative approach to all aspects of human security, starting from its definition through to the design and implementation of security strategies. Feminist insights regarding knowledge and power are central to the discussion, and are used to elaborate upon hierarchical structures of politics, methodological aspects and ecological concerns in relation to international security.
