dc.description.abstract Human security (HS) came about as a result of a number of international developments that triggered risks threatening the wellbeing, security and survival of human beings. In that regard, HS shifted away from exclusive concerns with the state towards individual citizens. This study examined HS challenges in Zimbabwe from 2008 to 2017. A qualitative research methodology and exploratory design was employed for that purpose. The study also employed realism as a theory to analyse the research problem. Data was derived exclusively from secondary sources. Various HS categories were used to exam Zimbabwe. These included food, health and political security. Furthermore, the study assessed the impact of HS threats on the welfare and day to day life of Zimbabweans. In doing so, it highlighted how a denial of basic human rights undermined the security of citizens. It concluded by suggesting a number of policy recommendations, which could stem the massive poverty that now characterises that country. Among others, these include consciously cultivating respect for human rights and democracy and good governance. This effort must be followed by programmes geared at improving the socio-economic circumstances of all Zimbabweans irrespective of their political affiliation. Regional, continental and broader global organisations must commit and help Zimbabwe rebuild itself economically and politically as well. en_US
