9780199604555: War by Contract: Human Rights, Humanitarian Law, and Private Contractors

The growth in scope and importance of the private military and security industry in the past decade has challenged the role of the state as the main provider of defence and security functions. At the same time it has put under stress the state's authority to properly oversee the conduct of private contractors and has raised the question of whether existing rules of domestic law and international law are adequate to ensure their accountability in the event of abuse. This book addresses this question through the lens of international human rights law and international humanitarian law. It presents a systematic analysis of the way in which these two bodies of international law, applicable in times of peace and in the event of armed conflict, may be interpreted and implemented in a way so as to fill possible accountability gaps.

Human rights and humanitarian law obligations are analysed from the point of view of their applicability to the states involved, to international organizations, and to the companies and their individual employees. Victims' access to civil remedies and the criminal prosecution of private contractors, as well as new policy issues, such as the use of private contractors in the fight against piracy, are also covered in the book.

Review:


"The most comprehensive and up-to-date volume that grapples with the thorny issues surrounding PMSCs. The analyses presented will remain continually relevant into the future. An impressive achievement and it would be unsurprising if it became the definitive work in the area."
--Hin-Yan Liu, King's College London


"A unique survey of the legal implications of employing private contractors on maritime vessels. A meaningful and necessary first step in such an analysis"
--Piracy-law.com


"A thorough, impressively researched, and amply investigated discussion of a timely topic. This book makes an important contribution to this area of law, one that will benefit both policy- and law-makers around the world as they continue to work through the legal implications of the use of PMSCs."
--Hannah M. Junkerman, NYU School of Law Journal of International Law and Politics (Vol 45, Issue 3)
