Summary
Corporations in conflict zones and their provision of security are particularly relevant for understanding whether private actors are increasingly sources of governance contributions that regulate public goods. Feil highlights the discrepancies between political and theoretical expectations of corporate engagement and governance contributions.

Summary expansion
In this book, Moira Feil challenges the role of private actors in governance by focusing on the hard case of security. She assesses the political quality of corporate engagement by systematically differentiating governance contributions from broader corporate responsibility approaches as well as their direct and indirect connections to security. New empirical information on company cases from beverage production, telecommunications and petrol distribution sectors in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo reveals an array of company engagements, though no direct governance contributions to security. The explanatory model for company governance contributions draws on global governance, failed states and organisational research. The author suggests that contextual influences interplay with public and private sector leadership in fostering corporate contributions to governance. She highlights that context matters to governance expectations and that corporations have a role to play
