The Foreign Terrorist Fighters Working Group - Plenary Meeting: Improving International Collaboration to Address the Foreign Terrorist Fighter Phenomenon
17-18 May 2016
Participants reviewed the Working Group’s strategic priorities, discussed the proposed Addendum to The Hague-Marrakech Memorandum on Good Practices for a more effective response to the foreign terrorist fighter (FTF) phenomenon (The Hague-Marrakech Memorandum), considered ongoing and planned initiatives, and reviewed activities since the previous Working Group Plenary Meeting.
Key themes of the discussion included: trends and dynamics of FTFs; The Addendum to The Hague-Marrakech Memorandum; and the importance of a renewed focus on strategic communications.
The Addendum to The Hague-Marrakech Memorandum is part of the cross-cutting Initiative to Address the Life Cycle of Radicalization to Violence (Life Cycle Initiative), which will be presented and adopted at the Tenth GCTF Coordinating Committee Meeting and the Seventh Ministerial Plenary Meeting in New York in September 2016.
