Thematic Priorities

Foreign Terrorist Fighters (FTF)

While the phenomenon of Foreign Terrorist Fighters (FTF) is not new, the recent wave of individuals traveling across the world to join foreign wars differs from previous situations. This is mainly due to the fact that individuals returning home are often more radicalized and have a mandate to now target their governments and countries. Apart from the threat they cause in the regions they travel to, a main concern is how to deal with individuals returning home, who might pose a serious threat to their countries. Hedayah aims to respond to the need of better understanding the motivations of foreign fighters, to develop methods to reintegrate them back into their society and to share good practices. Hedayah also assists in ensuring that government responses are adequate to prevent this growing phenomenon and threat.
