PEACE, PROFIT OR PLUNDER: THE PRIVATIZATION OF SECURITY IN WAR TORN AFRICAN SOCIETIES

Francois Vreÿ

Abstract


This publication is about a theme that is presently a rising issue of concern on the national security agendas of states and other bodies grappling with security issues. This concern takes place against the tendency of an increasing number of issues being dumped into the security dustbin. Privatisation of security holds both the potential to soften the security dilemmas of countries as well as to threaten the marginal security of weak states. The publication deals with both sides by pointing out the constructive as well as the destructive potential of the private security industry.
