A U.N. Convention to Regulate PMSCs?

Criminal Justice Ethics 31 (3):262-286 (2012)
Abstract In the last 20 years the ruthless competition for natural resources, political instability, armed conflicts, and the terrorist attacks of 9/11 have paved the way for private military and security companies (PMSCs) to operate in areas which were until recently the preserve of the state. PMSCs, less regulated than the toy industry, commit grave human rights violations with impunity. The United Nations has elaborated an international binding instrument to regulate their activities but the opposition of the U.S., U.K., and other Western governments?and from PMSCs, which prefer self-regulation?have prevented any advancement.
