The IISS analysis of FARC communications fills an important gap in our understanding of the recent history of the Andean region. It is an essential research tool.' Malcolm Deas, St Anthony's College, Oxford This Strategic Dossier provides unique insights into the thinking and evolution of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). It is based on a study of the computer disks belonging to Luis Edgar Devía Silva (aka Raúl Reyes), head of FARC's International Committee (COMINTER), that were seized by Colombian armed forces in a raid in March 2008 on Devía's camp inside Ecuador. It shows how FARC evolved from a small, autarkic and strategically irrelevant group into an insurgent movement which, fuelled by revenues from narcotics production, came close to jeopardising the survival of the Colombian state. A key part of FARC's evolution was the development of an international strategy aimed at acquiring financial support, arms and political legitimacy. The dossier is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing all relevant e-mails unedited and in the original Spanish in a searchable, chronological format.
