Anthony Davis, Thailand/Australia, has been a correspondent for the weekly newsmagazine Asiaweek since 1979 and has been writing for Jane's Defence Weekly since 1991.
His investigations have centered on three often-interrelated topics: guerrilla forces, terrorist groups, and the weapons and narcotics trade. Davis has traced the rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan, Sri Lanka’s Tamil Tigers and their clandestine international network, and the drug connections of Myanmar’s ruling junta. Other investigations have looked at professional hitmen in Thailand and base camps of the secessionist Moro Islamic Liberation Front on the Philippine island of Mindanao.
Davis’ expertise lies mainly in Afghanistan and West Asia, but he continues to work in Southeast Asia, where he began as a Cambodia war correspondent over two decades ago.
