Abstract

This Article focuses on the murky and difficult issues posed by the PMC and in particular, it examines the significance of utilizing the corporate form in the privatization of violent services.7 A policy and legal analysis is developed by focusing on Nation-States and PMCs in the domestic context, reviewing the State's control of force in de jure and de facto terms before turning to evaluate the privatization of military goods and services. From that analysis, it goes on to embrace an ambitious mandate-regulatory paradigms.
