Merchants of African Conflict More Than Just a Pound of Flesh

"This monograph is a modest contribution to the body of knowledge that seeks to intensify the call for the regulation of PMSCs in Africa, especially in the context of African conflicts. That African conflicts have included the use of PMSCs is not in dispute. The most disturbing issue, however, is that the use of PMSCs in such conflicts is not regulated, resulting in PMSCs violating human rights with impunity. The need for an international mechanism that will monitor and oversee the activities of PMSCs is now long overdue."
