State Responsibility and New Trends in the Privatization of Warfare

Frauke Renz, Founder of IR Asia

Contracts with private military and security companies are a reality of modern conflicts. This discerning book provides nuanced insights into the international legal implications of these contracts, and establishes an in-depth understanding of the impacts for contracting states, home states and territorial states under the current state responsibility regime.

‘An important analysis on the rise of private military forces and the frontier of international law. Until states take their duty seriously the market for force will continue to grow, allowing the super-rich to become superpowers.’
– Sean McFate, The Atlantic Council, National Defense University and Georgetown University, US
