Hired Guns and Human Rights: Global Governance and Access to Remedies in the Private Military and Security Industry

About the eBook

This innovative book provides an overview and critical assessment of the current avenues and remedies available to victims seeking recourse from private military and security companies (PMSCs) for human rights violations.

Kuzi Charamba explores the challenges of regulating PMSCs and the significant jurisprudential and practical difficulties that victims face in attaining recourse from PMSCs, whether through state or non-state, judicial or non-judicial mechanisms. In response to these problems, Charamba proposes the introduction of a new victim-focused grievance structure, based on international arbitration. He argues that this will provide for a more robust, inclusive, and participatory governance system to support the effective operation of a globally administered and locally accessible remedial mechanism. Taking a forward-thinking approach, the book also analyses law making and regulation by non-state actors in a globalized world and offers policy and legislative proposals for the reform of the national security sector.

Hired Guns and Human Rights will be a valuable resource for students, scholars, and practitioners of international legal theory, international human rights law, global governance, business and human rights, and international dispute resolution. Its focus on both state and non-state responses to human rights grievances against corporations around the world will also benefit policy-makers and international NGOs.
