What are the contributions private companies can make to peace and security in zones of conflict? In Corporate Security Responsibility? Corporate Governance Contributuons to Peace and Security in Zones of Conflict, edited by Nicole Deitelhoff and Klaus Dieter Wolf, the authors attend to this question and examine the role of private business in conflict zones. The volume comprises a range of comparative empirical studies based on extensive field research. From this research, the experts identify factors that determine different types of contributions to peace and security by transnational corporations. Based on the empirical and theoretical findings, the authors furthermore draw conclusions about the interplay between the public and the private sector in the context of global governance. The book hereby contributes to closing the gap between research on global governance and peace and conflict studies.
The book is the closing volume to the core project "Business in Zones of Conflict", which is supported with funds from the Fritz Thyssen-Stiftung, the Deutsche Stiftung Friedensforschung and the Cluster of Excellence "The Formation of Normative Orders".
