This book focuses on the role of private businesses in zones of conflict. It looks at the type of governance contributions expected from transnational business corporations towards peace and security. The volume comprises a range of comparative empirical case studies based on extensive field research. From this research, conclusions are drawn about what determines these contributions and the implications of these empirical and theoretical findings for the interplay between the public and the private sector in the context of global governance.
The book contributes to closing the gap between research on Global Governance and Peace and Conflict Studies. It applies a systematic research design to the study of corporate governance contributions to peace and security across a number of cases.Overview of the Content:
