Abstract: Throughout the Iraq War, Private Military Companies proved their ability to handle many of the peace operation missions conducted by the multilateral forces. Furthermore, PMCs are now part of the Total Force in Iraq that the US military forces heavily rely on. With significant weight put on PMCs’ logistics in conducting warfare and operations, we wonder if this may be the future model of military operations. By looking at the debates and discussion in academic community and international organizations, this presentation will look at what should be the appropriate demarcation of roles between official defense organizations and private military contractors.

Abstract: Fighting and preventing global crime such as terrorism, organized crime and trafficking of human beings necessitates strategies that go beyond the domestic sphere in order to include the transnational sphere. In this regard, and since the end of the Cold war, more and more police officers have been involved in police work conducted outside of their sovereign territory. The deployment of UNPOL in international peacekeeping operations is one of the most illustrative types of such policing without borders. Based on interviews conducted with Canadian police officers who participated in international police operations, I will focus on how participants negotiate the transposition of a «home grown» constabulary ethos in order to achieve their police work in such transnational operations. If the strict transposition of the domestic police methods, or repertoire, to the new environment reveals useless, I will show yet that police officers elaborate innovative strategies and practices that reveal promising for the prevention and de-escalation of violence in the peace operation context. Also, such innovations might help scholars to develop more accurate paradigms so as to grasp police work in its transnational condition.
