1. In the present report, the Working Group on the use of mercenaries as a means of violating human rights and impeding the exercise of the right of peoples to self-determination describes the activities it has undertaken since it last reported to the Human Rights Council in March 2009. The report focuses in particular on the progress achieved in the elaboration of a possible draft convention on private military and security companies (PMSCs). It takes into consideration communications sent between 16 December 2008 and 18 April 2010.
