[PDF] From armed privates to private armies: Regulating Private Military and Security Companies

One of the first responses to calls for regulation came from the Swiss Government in the form of the Montreux Document and the 2010 voluntary Interna-tional Code of Conduct for Private Security Providers (ICoC). Are those documents an adequate answer to the challenges of the ‘privatization of war’, or is an international treaty indispensible? Can a contracting company (e.g. a gas or oil company), relay on the fact that its security provider has signed the ICoC, to be certain that it meets its own responsibility to respect human rights? Our guests – representing the government, business and NGO perspectives - will attempt to answer these questions.
