On May 2, 2023, CEP hosted a webinar, where Sofia Koller, senior research analyst at CEP Germany, presented her latest policy paper, "Prosecution of Returnees from Syria and Iraq in France: Insights and Recommendations for Policymakers and Security Agencies."

The CEP policy paper serves as a starting point for a discussion on the approach to prosecuting returnees in France, the role of international criminal law, gendered differences, as well as broader challenges of human rights-based processes of prosecution, rehabilitation, and reintegration of ISIS-affiliates.

Extremists: Their Words. Their Actions.

In Their Own Words:

We reiterate once again that the brigades will directly target US bases across the region in case the US enemy commits a folly and decides to strike our resistance fighters and their camps [in Iraq].
