—The problem of human security in international
relations is becoming increasingly important replacing and
pushing on the back burn the problems of national and state
security. The nature of the argumentation is changing in the
protection of all types of security. International expert
communities (epistemic communities) are engaged into the
disputes of national and state interests as arbitrators since they
are able to develop independent forecasts and recommendations.
This trend could easily be seen in East Asia though it falls
behind the political tendencies of the West.
—Epistemic communities, international expert
communities, human security.
