Private military & security contractors: a culture of impunity

War on Want...launched its campaign for tougher legal regulation of Private Military & Security Companies, criticising current attempts at regulation for showing 'no real determination to deter or punish human rights violations'...While the UK government is content for PMSCs to regulate their own behaviour, War on Want campaigns for national regulation of the industry...Voluntary codes like the 2010 International Code of Conduct for Private Security Providers (ICoC) are not the answer to the culture of impunity that PMSCs enjoy.
