ICCT Situation Report: The Use of Small Arms & Light Weapons by Terrorist Organisations as a Source of Finance in South and Southeast AsiaMéryl Demuynck, Tanya Mehra LL.M, Reinier Bergema 17 Jun 2020
This situation report—the second in a wider series of papers exploring the use of SALW as a source of terrorism financing—will examine the acquisition, possession, and use of SALW by terrorist organisations active in South and South-East Asia. It will investigate the extent to which SALW may represent a direct source of funding and/or an enabler to conduct other profit-making activities for these groups. While presenting an overview of the situation and dynamics at work across each area, the analysis aims to identify potential common patterns and/or discrepancies among and within the two regions.
