Thereby, the literature a priori objects to the contractor’s alleged financial motivation. 33 The idea behind this assumption is that the contractor unlike the soldier is not motivated by a patriotic duty to society and state but by a professional duty to a client in exchange for financial remuneration. 34 It could be suggested, therefore, that the traditional understanding of security as a trinitarian concept, whereby an agent of the state provides security as a public good for state and society, is in need of updating—particularly when considering humanitarian intervention.
