About the blog:

The blog was founded in June 2012 by Katharine Fortin. Its two main purposes are ‘information sharing’ and ‘community building’ between individuals and organisations working on issues related to armed groups. The blog aims to provide updates on news stories and publicize academic journal articles and seminars, talks and conferences on issues related to armed groups. Academic commentary from individuals or orgnisations on current issues, recent cases or developing issues is welcomed.  Such content will be accredited to the contributing individual or organisation, who will retain sole responsibility for the accuracy and originality of the post’s contents. The editors of the blog will reserve the discretion to decide whether contributions will be published.

Top news stories are selected by the editors of the blog who cannot vouch for their factual accuracy. Efforts are made to ensure that news and commentary are only provided from established non-biased news providers, academics or students of international law or organisations with a humanitarian purpose.
