Abstract

Globalization has brought many changes to the world order. Among other is the rising role of the private sector. As a result today private sector owns many of critical “levers” that on one or another way have enabled states’ monopoly in the past. Considering as one of the fastest growing businesses, employment of the private security corporations during post-conflict management is becoming significant trend. However, there are two specific things about this trend. First, U.S. and U.K. are two countries that have so far most benefits from the business. Second, critics hold that private security corporations during the post-conflict operations pose serious legal and ethical challenges and thus indirectly threaten peace and security efforts. Additional issue for Macedonia in this context is that like the rest of the South-East European countries (SEE), increasing number of former security and civilian personnel become part of this business without Government’s consent. Many issues regarding this private civilian involvement, like the decapitation of Macedonian workers in 2006, 2007 and 2010 arguable could have been managed better. Therefore article first explains how corporate security management struggles for place in international market in an age of globalization and how this struggle ends in legal and moral dilemmas. In order to prove that Macedonian corporate security management (like the rest of the SEE management) could compete on the international global market and provide liable partners for international peace and security, the article first briefly describes the short legacy of Macedonian corporate security management and identifies the weakest and strongest points. At the end article provides a “framework proposal” for a “triple win-win” situation, where Government, International organizations and Macedonian corporate security management could benefit.
