Abstract

Private security companies (PSCs) often operate in areas of conflict or weak governance, in the absence of effective regulation and with a high risk of implication in serious human rights abuses. As a result, governments and industry representatives, sometimes with civil society’s participation, have developed several guidelines and codes of conduct that seek PSCs commitment to human rights standards and monitor their activities.
