DE-RADICALIZATION, DISENGAGEMENT AND REINTEGRATION

Hedayah prioritizes our expertise in disengagement, deradicalization and reintegration of individuals who are either in the process of radicalization, or convicted and imprisoned, or released from prison. Through holistic programs and publications, such as the “Blueprint of a Rehabilitation and Reintegration Center: Good Practices for Rehabilitating and Reintegrating Returning Foreign Terrorist Fighters and Their Families”, we emphasize the importance of taking a comprehensive approach, combining various elements, to ensure that these individuals reject violence and become constructive members of their communities.
Hedayah aims to contribute to these efforts by helping design and develop initiatives that seek to successfully reintegrate individuals back into society. This effort includes Returning Foreign Terrorist Fighters (RFTFs) and Home-Grown Terrorists, as well as radicalized youth, children and family members. We believe that some of the reintegrated individuals could even become positive role models with messages that can be valuable in preventing radicalization and recruitment within their communities. Additionally, Hedayah continues to better understand the experiences and narratives of formers to improve its existing and new CVE related projects.
