Dear H-Warriors,

H-Diplo's ISSF Forum No. 6 (2015), produced by H-Diplo together with the journals Security Studies, International Security, Journal of Strategic Studies, and the International Studies Association’s Security Studies Section (ISSS), was just published and may be of interest to this list as well. It discusses a special issue of International Journal 69:4 (December 2014) consisting of five articles on private military and security contractors and contracting (four country cases on the USA, UK, Sweden, and Canada, and one examination of why contractors are no longer considered mercenaries).

The H-Diplo post can be found here, and the forum here.
