The global growth of private security services signals a
significant shift in the production of the most traditional
good provided by modern nation states – security. This
systematic mixed methods analysis, linking output- and
process-oriented policy theories, shows patterns and
mechanisms of how political factors – like party
dominance – drive the development of private security
policy and industry. Based in comparative policy analysis it
asks, what accounts for the differences in the policies
toward and the outcomes of private security between EU
member states?
