Mind the Gap: Lacunae in the International Legal Framework Governing Private Military and Security Companies

Criminal Justice Ethics 31 (3):213-232 (2012)
Abstract This article examines the common claim that there are gaps in international law that undermine accountability of private military and security companies. A multi-actor analysis examines this question in relation to the commission of international crimes, violations of fundamental human rights, and ordinary crimes. Without this critical first step of identifying specific deficiencies in international law, the debate about how to enhance accountability within this sector is likely to be misguided at best
