My Policy Brief for Small Arms Survey was published, analyzing the comparative organizational capacity of the “moderate” Syrian armed groups. It draws on interviews I’ve held with FSA commanders in southern Turkey last year.
The brief forms part of Small Arms Survey’s Security Assessment in North Africa (SANA) programme and can be found online here:

And among so many opposition groups, how do they coordinate with their allies and define their enemies?
