There is continuing uncertainty at the policy level over how and when to engage non-state armed groups (NSAGs). There has also been little focus on how community-based actors reach out to and are reached by NSAGs. Understanding local interactions with NSAGs may provide better analysis of a group’s dynamics as well as provide entry points for dialogue when formal channels are blocked. However there are a number of challenges and risks, as well as opportunities, for those that reach out to NSAGs.
