‘The ‘returnees’ of Syria and Iraq: between threat and the challenge of reintegration
Since 2012, nearly 5000 Europeans have left for Syria and Iraq, many to fight alongside jihadist forces. Some of them have already returned, while quite a few – some 2500 according to certain estimates – still remain in place, but could return in the foreseeable future. Who are these ‘returnees’? How are they monitored when they come back? How do they reintegrate? Do they pose a threat? These sensitive and difficult questions will be at the heart of this lecture’s discussions.
