Workshop on „Best practices and approaches in the reintegration of foreign terrorist fighter (FTF) returnees“ organized by the CSRWorkshop on „Best practices and approaches in the reintegration of foreign terrorist fighter (FTF) returnees“ organized by the CSR



Within the CSR operational framework, taking into account the relevance of the topic related to foreign terrorist fighters and the process of reintegration of returnees, we considered it extremely important for this topic to develop a useful discussion between directly or indirectly affected individuals, institutions and organizations, during which opinions and best practices for dealing with this process will be exchanged. For that purpose, we organized the workshop titled „Best practices and approaches in the reintegration of foreign terrorist fighter (FTF) returnees“ on Feb 23, 2021, which was held in a combined (offline/online via ZOOM) format.

The main topic of the workshop was the threat posed and national experiences on the FTF returnees, and how several countries in Southeast Europe dealt with that issue.
