In Episode 4 of ICoCA’s Podcast Series ‘Future Security Trends: Implications for Human Rights’ we interview Dr Sorcha MacLeod, Associate Professor and Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual Fellow in the Centre for Private Governance (CEPRI) in the Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen and an independent human rights expert on the United Nations Working Group on Mercenaries and the UN Intergovernmental Working Group on private military and security companies.

Among other questions, we ask Dr. MacLeod:

  • How private security companies and their role in the COVID-19 pandemic have impacted human rights?
  • Why should we be concerned about the increasing use of mercenaries around the world?
  • What other issues are on the horizon in the private security space that have implications for human rights?
