The application of an integrated Human Security perspective in education is stymied by the extreme fragmentation that characterizes the present silo-based disciplinary structure of higher education. This session will explore the potential for evolution of transdisciplinary, contextual approaches to interrelate and unify disciplinary perspectives and transform abstract, theoretical forms of learning into terms more suitable for understanding and effective action in the real world.
