Abstract

The revolution in military affairs- caused by the implication of private companies in military operations, a phenomenon known as „the privatization of war”- is a reason for controversy in scientific literature, as well as in the process of creating military and political strategies. The privatization of armies has generated divergence regarding the legal status applicable, especially the legality of the existence of such military forces and the rules of engagement for these structures and the conformation to the rules of international humanitarian common law.
