Development Cooperation and Non-State Armed Groups

This study is the outcome of a research project conducted by the German Development Institute (DIE) from late 2004 until the summer of 2006. The research included numerous personal and telephone interviews. Many of those interviewed made documents available. Various international institutions also took part in a written survey.

We would like to convey our sincere thanks to all those interviewed and all the individuals and institutions otherwise involved in the project for their cooperation and frankness.
