Abstract [en]

There is little research examining the consequences of private military and security companies (PMSCs) in territorial states, and even fewer so examining the consequences for people in territorial states. This study uses a large-N dataset to test the statistical relationship between the prevalence of PMSC events and the level of freedom of movement of women and men in hopes to partially fill this gap. I pose the question ‘how does the prevalence of PMSC events affect the freedom of movement of women and men in the territorial states they operate in?’ I proposed two hypotheses: first, there is a negative relationship between the number of PMSC events in a country-year and the level of freedom of movement; and second, that women experience a lower level of freedom of movement when compared to men in country-years with PMSC events. I find support for the first hypothesis and surprisingly find null-results for the second hypothesis. Throughout the study, I apply a gendered perspective, and develop a theoretical argument based in feminist security studies. The implications of my findings indicate that PMSC events have a detrimental effect on the freedom of movement in territorial states, but that future research is needed to determine the extent to which, and how, PMSC events affect women in comparison to men.
