The Centre for Peace and Reconciliation Studies (CPRS) at Coventry University is home to an innovative research group, CPRS Turkey, that seeks to explore a wide range of conflict and peace related matters with a specific reference to Turkey. One of CPRS Turkey’s primary objectives is to organise an annual conference series on “Human Security” in Turkey.


The purpose of the conference series is to explore the concept and approaches to Human Security with its new challenges and perspectives in the context of Turkey. Human security is a people-centred approach to global security which recognises that lasting peace and social justice cannot be achieved unless people are protected from threats to their rights and basic needs. Among the main human security threats are: violence and abuse of human rights; corruption and bad governance; disasters and climate change; and poverty and poor access to basic services.
