    War is becoming increasingly privatised, and the rules of the battlefield are shifting. Now we are reaching a point when companies are fighting companies, and the international justice system has no framework to deal with it. We take a look at just how out of control the situation has become by analysing Wagner's operations in Africa and on the sea. 

    On the panel.

    - Sean Mcfate (Atlantic Council)
    - Catrina Doxsee (CSIS)
    - Andreas Kreig (Kings College)
