Description: This thesis studies how different providers of material aid affect insurgency capabilities. Sources discussed here are non-state actors, specifically the narcotics trade, another non-state violent group, and a diaspora. I generate three hypotheses about the effects of material aid provided by each source. These hypotheses are then tested prior to, during, and following the application of this aid by following the progress of two case studies: the FARC and the LTTE. An analysis of these case studies prompts future research and suggestions for policy direction based on the overall conclusion that different non-state providers of material aid do influence the capabilities of an insurgency in different ways.
