Sammanfattning: The purpose of this essay is to examine the development of the use of private security contractors in Iraq. The reason is that there has been a considerable increase of the number of private security firms operating in Iraq during the last couple of years. The legislation in the field of private military and security is indistinct and my hypothesis is that the lack of national and/or international legislation can be connected to the increased globalization. To come to any conclusions about this I have chosen to make a comparative study between the two cases the Gulf War and the War in Iraq which started in 2003. In this comparison, I ask the following questions: 1) Are there any signs of anarchy in the field of private security during the Gulf War respectively the last War in Iraq? 2) In what way has the use of private security contractors changed from Case 1 to Case 2 ? According to my research, there were signs of anarchy in the field of private security both during the Gulf War and during the latest war in Iraq. The use of private security contractors has been liberalized from Case 1 to Case 2. It is difficult to say exactly what kind of impact the globalization has had on this liberalisation, but the increased outsourcing of military- and security services would not have been possible without some kind of impact from the globalization.
