Säkerhet till salu – Privata militär- och säkerhetsföretags strukturella makt inom EU:s säkerhetspolitik

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

Sammanfattning: The influence of non-state actors on EU policies is increasing. At the same time, a new player has emerged in the world political arena: private military and security companies (PMSC). Therefore, questions could be raised about what it would imply if policies, advancing global security, are based on corporate interests. This case study aims to understand how the structural power of PMSC in EU security policy can be explained. This is done through a process tracing on PMSC activities and capacities within the EU. The result of the analysis shows that the relationship at supranational EU level leads to PMSC gaining the ability to design frameworks for their own sector. This in turn leads to PMSC gaining the ability to limit public scrutiny of their work resulting in privileged access and ability to process information and ideas. Finally, this results in PMSC being the actor with a unique capability that the EU wants to buy.
