  6. FEMALE PERSPECTIVE OF SECURITY IN PUNJAB (INDIA) : Human security is needed in response to the complexity and inter-linkages of both old and new security threats i.e. from chronic and persistent poverty to ethnic violence, human trafficking, climate change, health problems, international terrorism and sudden economicand financial downturns. Such threats tend to acquire transnational dimensions and move beyond traditional notions of security that focuses on external military aggression alone. This requires a compressive approach to tackle such threats in an integrated manner demanding redefinition of security in 21st century. Against this backdrop, Women's Studies Centre, Punjabi University, Patiala undertook this research project. The aim of this project was to identify some key challenges in conceptualizing security in 21st century from female perspective.

The study shall attempt to venture into the causes and consequences of declining sex ratio apart from reviewing the  intervention steps taken by the Government. After analysing the views from the respondents from both the sexes and across three age groups, the study would intend to recommend some remedial measures to eliminate this menace.
