The Sanctions Repertoire operates a way of keeping order in the social field through the use of both positive and negative sanctions. The chapter considers the use of both these including gifting, favours, religion, rumour, and then reviews how these are implemented using different variables. Negative sanctions such as threats, violence and honey traps are used along with increasing use of threats to families, abductions and the use of firearms
