Workshop on Rehabilitation and Reintegration of Returning Foreign Terrorist Fighters (RFTFs)
26 May 2016
In order to increase the awareness of legal implications and considerations regarding the rehabilitation and reintegration of returning Foreign Terrorist Fighters (RFTFs) and Violent Extremist Offenders (VEOs), the GCTF’s Detention and Reintegration (DR) Working Group and the Criminal Justice and Rule of Law (CJ-ROL) Working Group convened a joint meeting, together with the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) in Turin. The meeting aimed to develop an addendum to the Rome Memorandum on Good Practices for Rehabilitation and Reintegration of Violent Extremist Offenders.
During this expert-level meeting, criminal justice practitioners as well as rehabilitation and reintegration experts reviewed and discussed specific legal framework issues regarding rehabilitation and reintegration efforts in custodial and non-custodial settings.Based on the outcomes of the meeting, a draft addendum to the Rome Memorandum will be prepared and adopted at the Tenth GCTF Coordinating Committee Meeting and the Seventh Ministerial Plenary Meeting in New York in September 2016.
