Services previously supplied by the state are increasingly being offered by private
intelligence and defense businesses. As a result of public-private partnerships, the business sector
has been gradually integrated into effective security policy management. Such as protecting
crucial infrastructure or preventing conflict despite this, there are some sensitive issues to be
addressed as we go toward dismantling the state's monopoly on force. Security policy could
benefit by integrating the private sector further. Personal safety and intellectual property
protection are critical to the success of any business, so private security is vital (Collier, 2018).
Many of the nation's institutions and essential infrastructure systems, including manufacturing,
energy, transport, and educational and health facilities, are protected by private security guards
Additionally, private security agencies are used by companies to undertake a wide range
of functions, including private investigations and pre-employment screening and IT security.
Commercial and residential customers alike rely on these services (Mihaljević,2018). In some
cases, businesses employ their security employees, while in others, security services are
contracted out, or a combination of both in-house and contract workers is used. In this paper, I
will examine the role that the private sector has in security policy to improve security status.
The working solution is Making the private sector a part of domestic security. Aside from
the actual security corporations, many additional corporate actors are now active in security
policy. Among these, we should start with the numerous business sectors that play an important
role in handling emerging risks. The banking industry, for example, is an essential partner in
anti-terrorism financing initiatives. Some other sector that cannot be safeguarded without the
participation of businesses is the security of essential infrastructure aspects such as
transportation, telecommunications, and water supply. Involving the private sector eases the
Budden on security in the public sector.
Measurement and analysis approach
The key points that I will research in this paper are;
1. International security
Today, the field with the greatest number of organizations active in security policy is
conflict prevention. The emphasis here is on avoiding a situation in which business activities
effectively foster conflict. Companies doing business in developing nations may engage in a
variety of potentially destabilizing practices. Public-private cooperation is also gaining traction
in this sector, where the roles of corporate and state actors are supplemented by the presence of
non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The UN Global Compact is the most visible example
of a multi-stakeholder process. Its goal is to promote ten principles in human rights, labour
standards, environmental conservation, and anti-corruption measures across the board (Carrapico
& Farrand,2017). Companies that participate can demonstrate ethical entrepreneurship while
assisting the UN in managing global concerns.
2. The private sector and peacebuilding
Until now, the private sector's role in global conflict prevention has been limited to
damage avoidance. Efforts are currently underway, however, to persuade corporate actors to take
an active role in peacebuilding. Recent experience has demonstrated that a lack of economic
growth can be a key element in the aggressive escalation of conflicts. According to World Bank
research, the weakest one-sixth of the world's population faces 80 per cent of the world's wars.
According to statistics, increasing the median earnings in a specific state reduces the likelihood
of conflict by 50% (Mihaljević,2018).
How data will be gathered and analyzed
Data will be gathered through interviews, interviews, focus groups, oral histories and the
use of questionnaires and surveys. Data will be analyzed by use of statistical techniques by using
various data analysis softwares like SPSS.
