Abstract

Abstract There is a clear and distinct relation between human security and education. To have human security is essential for development through education, so that people can unleash their potential, provide for their livelihood, practice their rights, and do their duties. This study addresses the subject of the human security of the faculty working in Jordanian state and private universities. The study analyzes the responses of "cluster random sample" of members of the faculty in said universities. The survey includes 400 staff members, who responded to a questionnaire that was given directly to them. The questionnaire is divided into five major themes, each of which measures one fundamental aspect of human security. The five themes are: job security; legal security; economic security; research security; and personal and moral security. Based on results, the study gives a set of specific recommendations for the various aspects of security for the academic staff in Jordan.
