Dr. Paul Stott (HJS) speaking during EFSAS Side-event at the 42nd Session of UNHRC
Dr. Paul Stott, Research Fellow in the Centre for the Responses to Radicalization and Terrorism at the Henry Jackson Society, Tutor in the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy at SOAS, and a Research Fellow of EFSAS, discussed the repercussions for Western countries stemming from the terrorist financing phenomenon emanating in South Asia. He explained how historically terrorism has required significant logistical support, which is visible from the tendency of terrorist groups becoming wealthy, such as the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). He further stated that money and support potentially flows in at least two directions – from South Asia to the United Kingdom (UK), and from the UK/Europe to the Indian subcontinent.
