ALLIES Weekly Discussion-Holding Private Military Contractors Accountable 

Stories of human rights violations by private military contractors (PMCs) have surfaced in many conflicts abroad, notably by U.S. contractors at Abu Ghraib and at other prisons in Iraq and Afghanistan. How can countries who employ PMCs and the international community hold PMCs accountable for their actions? Join ALLIES this Wednesday as we discuss how to regulate PMCs via international frameworks and other methods to prevent future human rights violations from occurring.

As always, no prior knowledge is required and background readings will be provided at the meeting.
