(p.171) Conclusion
What Rebels Want

Jennifer M. Hazen

Cornell University Press

This concluding chapter argues that rebel groups fighting around the globe have demonstrated the capacity to develop a wide range of support networks to fuel their conflicts. Groups have sought financial resources from the sale of natural resources, donations from diaspora, support from sympathetic governments, and taxes on trade. They have also resorted to kidnapping and bank robberies to generate income to buy weapons. Moreover, rebel groups receive political support through diaspora pressure on governments, political legitimacy through external recognition, external state sponsorship in negotiations, and the provision of safe haven. Access to these resources determine the options available for rebel groups—whether to continue fighting or seek negotiations.

Keywords:   rebel groups, support networks, financial resources, military resources, political support, negotiations, civil wars
