Abstract This article describes and analyzes the concept of human security within the scope of the United Nations and International Relations, and its relationship with the Responsibility to protect doctrine (R2P). We aim to answer the following questions: Does the use of the Responsibility to Protect doctrine widen the concept of human security or reduce it to its vertical dimension? The concepts of human security contribute to the understanding and the fighting against human trafficking? In order to answer these questions, the article is divided into three parts: in the first part, we present the theoretical and historical elements of the concept of human security developed in the United Nations documents, and within the scope of the International Relations Theory; in the second part, we analyze the contribution of the content and international practice of the R2P doctrine to the concept of human security; in the third part, we analyze the concept of human security in order to have a global understanding of human trafficking.
