I’m fascinated by the investigative work that goes into uncovering the funding sources of rebel groups. The M23 graph I wrote about last month shows the complex web of connections between the group and its funders. Shelby Grossman recently blogged about a similar chart for Boko Haram, which focuses on the types of support that the group has received from different sources.
The chart comes from a June 2012 World Policy piece by Carlo Davis. It would be fascinating to see an update to account for changes in financing sources over the last two years, especially from established political parties.
