THE USE OF SMALL ARMS & LIGHT WEAPONS AS A SOURCE OF TERRORIST FINANCING

On 15 July, the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism in The Hague published a paper which provides a brief historical overview of small arms and light weapons (SALW) trafficking, smuggling, and use for criminality by terrorists and insurgents. Using historical and contemporary examples, it outlines the use of SALW as both a source of terrorist financing and tools of the trade. This report is the fourth in a series on SALW as a source of finance for terrorist organisations, with the first 3 reports offering a snapshot of this phenomenon across different regions.
