Impact of Armed Groups’ Foreign Sponsorship Discussed

Last week, Assoc. Prof. Belgin San Akça of the Koç University Department of International Relations gave a talk as part of the International Relations Seminar Series organized by the Bilkent IR department.

Her presentation, “Foreign-State Patrons and Civilian Support for Armed Groups,” focused on the impact of external sponsorship of non-state armed organizations on civilian support for conflict processes. Prof. San Akça also introduced her recently digitalized Non-State Armed Groups Dataset, which covers 460 non-state armed groups’ relations with third parties all over the world.
