The International Peace Academy just released a report by James Cockayne entitled "Commercial Security in Humanitarian and Post-Conflict Settings: An Exploratory Study." This is by far the best paper to date on the subject of using commercial security in a humanitarian context. Very comprehensive and highly recommended reading. It's not on their Web site yet (thanks to AC for the advance copy), but it should be soon. We'll add a link to this post when it becomes available.
