      There is no satisfactory method to monitor and control the illicit arms trade. The shortcomings of qualitative data in the economy of development can be predominantly seen in three areas: aid effectiveness; influence of financialization on development; and evolving demands of development.

      ‘The policy tools of counter-terrorism reflect both the nature of the terrorist group in question and the strategies of the actors that engage in counter-terrorism.’ In this article, Nick Sitter argues that traditionally the tools of counter-terrorism have been law enforcement. With the rise of networked terrorism, however, NGOs may have the requisite tools and capabilities to challenge the terrorist narratives on the ground.

This practitioner commentary addresses recent moves toward multilateral principles between these two countries, namely Pakistan's decision to grant MFN status to India.’
