International Commission of Jurists

[PDF] Second Session of the Open-ended Intergovernmental Working Group to consider the possibility of an international regulatory framework on the regulation, monitoring and oversight of the activities of private military and security companies -...

The ICJ considers that an international convention is an effective option...[A] possible convention should differentiate between the regulation of private security services at home and abroad, and clarify the different roles of contracting, territorial and home States.
