This chapter argues that states should recognize the existence of such an international minimum standard, considering self-regulation (misleadingly called “co-regulation”) insufficient. This standard could be established through an international convention on the minimum requirements, which could be narrower than the possible draft convention presented by the Working Group on Mercenaries in 2010. The convention would address areas requiring codification and progressive development. In summary, the convention would seek to promote respect for human rights in the processes and practices of outsourcing, contracting, exporting, and importing armed coercion by states. If there is insufficient maturity among states to adopt such a treaty, this international minimum standard could also be adopted as a General Assembly resolution.
