CEP Webinar: Back from Raqqa – The Prosecution of Returnees in Germany and France | Oct. 17, 2022

The Counter Extremism Project (CEP) was delighted to host this webinar, where Sofia Koller, senior research analyst at CEP Germany, presented her policy paper on the prosecution of female returnees in Germany—the first in a series of CEP publications analyzing the prosecution, rehabilitation, and reintegration of returnees in different European countries. 

This research paper serves as the starting point of a discussion on the approach to prosecution of returnees in Germany and France, the role of international criminal law, as well as broader challenges of human rights-based processes of risk and needs assessment, rehabilitation, and reintegration of ISIS-affiliated men, women, and minors.
