This paper explores the international schemes for private sector’s involvement in peace building efforts. It discusses the theories of conflict economics and criticises the role of transnational companies in peace building in Africa. It argues that the participation of the private sector in peace making in African mineral-rich conflict torn zones is the result of international pressure and not a genuine will for a specific industry to contribute to settling the tensions and bring about development.
