  • ABSTRACT This article explores how private security companies may gain advantages from liberal peace narratives on state-building, democratization, and global governance. It supports this claim by drawing on the example of peacemaking efforts in Somalia and argues that the predominant narratives surrounding such interventions have helped to both change the type of PSCs engaged in Somalia and create a safer and stable environment for those private security actors.
